Saturday February 24, was a beautiful sunny day and the Baton Rouge Orchid Society members had a great day talking with folks about orchids.  They were there shopping for Herbs but could resist our beutiful display.  Thanks to the orchids of Bob Danka and Mal Corcoran who graciously allowed us to show off thier trophy plants.  Like usual, many folks wanted to purchase these plants but it was just a day to talk about mostly the Phal's they are having problems getting to bloom or just kept killing them.

We also appreciate the members that volunteered to help with the info booth, Lanna Lytle, Mal Corcoran and June Owen.

Red Stick Orchid Growers 

Patty and Kathy conducted the second meeting of the Red Stick Orchid Growers.  This group is a refresh of the Orchid For Seniors that Danna Spayde had lead for several years.  This version of the group invites all members and non members to attend during the day at the Goodwood pubic Library.  The meetings are held on the fourth (4th) Thursday of the month at 10 a.m. and cover a wide variety of information about Orchids.  There is no cost to join so come and learn.

Baton Rouge Orchid Conservatory

The Baton Rouge Orchid Conservatory at Burden is an ongoing work in process and a labor of love by several individuals lead by Frank Zachariah.

Thank you to all the volunteers helping with the Conservatory!!
