West Palm Beach Judging Center


Monthly orchid judging takes place at Flamingo Gardens the fourth Saturday of each month (except December), and the public is invited to observe the judging process. The West Palm Beach Judging Center of the American Orchid Society encourages everyone to bring orchids in for judging. It's a great way to learn about orchids, and most monthly meetings also include educational presentations.
