Formerly Orchid Lovers Club of Spring Hill
Goals of The Club.
Our aim at Nature Coast Orchid Society is to give orchid lovers an opportunity to share orchid culture and care experience, while educating and entertaining in a social and practical way. The prime objective is to acquaint our members with the diversity of orchid species and encourage the acquisition of rare and endangered varieties for preservation and enjoyment of future generations.
