The Saskatchewan Orchid Society (SOS) was founded in 1983 as a non-profit organization in Saskatoon, and was the Province's first orchid society. Its founders were interested in the conservation of orchid species both native and non-native to Saskatchewan. Today, we are approximately 60 members strong. At our monthly meetings, members show off blooming plants, discuss orchid culture, and participate in trade & sales. We often welcome international speakers who share their expertise as well as bring interesting orchids for sale. Join us, and learn more about growing orchids in the prairies.
Meetings start at 1:30PM and are typically held on the Saturday prior to the 4th Sunday of each month. Our society takes a brief hiatus during the months of June, July, August, and December.
Our first meeting after the summer will feature guest speaker Francisco Miranda from Florida. He is a specialist in Brazilian Cattleyas. Pre-orders

Our website has a new layout! We're trying to simplify the number of links, eliminate redundancy, and make the site friendlier for mobile devices. A few things will continue to change over the next few days. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have comments about readability, the new layout, or catch any broken content.
