The San Diego Cymbidium Orchid Society would like to invite the public to a special one-time free event on Wednesday, February 21 at 6:30 p.m.

Dr. Ron Kaufmann will be sharing his talk entitled "Orchids of Tropical America" that will discuss why orchids are among the most diverse families of plants, as well as amazing stories about orchid explorers, and the many ways in which orchids attract animals, including humans.

This presentation is based on the recently published book "Orchids of Tropical America," which Dr. Kaufmann co-authored. This is definitely an interesting presentation!

Beautiful orchid plants will be raffled off after the talk, and refreshments will be served.
