I’m an American Orchid Society Member!

AOS Welcome Packet

Recently I became a member of the American Orchid Society (AOS, found at www.aos.org) and my membership includes all these cool benefits:

  • Monthly subscription to Orchids magazine
  • Free and discounted admission to more than 200 botanical gardens and arboreta
  • Receive the annual Orchid Source Directory detailing orchid suppliers worldwide
  • Access to online orchid information and features available only to members
  • 10% discount on purchases in the Orchid Emporium or on-line
  • Discount on back issues of Orchids magazine and on American Orchid Society published books
  • Reduced processing fees for American Orchid Society judged plant and flower awards
  • Discounts on orchid class fees at the American Orchid Society Botanical Gardens
  • Free admission to the American Orchid Society Botanical Gardens and 50% off admission for any guests

That’s all pretty sweet for only $65 a year, right?! Especially with the inclusion of the monthly magazine subscription. I’m pretty psyched about the free admission, reduced guest fees, and gift shop discounts at AOS botanical gardens. Brooklyn Botanic Garden, New York Botanical Garden, and Queens Botanical Garden are all on their list, as is the Missouri Botanical Garden (MoBot) in my hometown of St. Louis. Plus, I now have access to the members-only forum on the AOS website. More orchid nerdery! Love it!
