About Us

Cultivating interest in Orchids since 1983

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.


763 genera, 28,000 species, millions of hybrids

Upcoming Meetings

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. Occasionally, changes to meeting times occur - please check below for details.
