Scout Interest Project

One of the ways the AOS Education Committee is trying to involve youth in our orchid society is with the Scout Interest Project.

This project is open to Girl or Boy Scout organizations. Any scout troop can develop and propose an orchid related project. At the conclusion of the project, the scouts receive the AOS Scout Patch and an article about the project is written for Orchids magazine.

Many of our projects involve a scout troop setting up and running a Kids Corner at an orchid show. However, others have involved rebuilding a greenhouse, inventorying an orchid collection, and working to clean out a native orchid bog. Questions or comments can be sent to the Education Committee at
