Portland Chapter of the American Rhododendron Society

The American Rhododendron Society is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization whose purpose is to encourage interest in and to disseminate information about the genus Rhododendron.  Members' experience ranges from novice to expert.  Society activities include public education, plant sales, flower shows, seed exchanges, and scientific research.

The society provides a medium through which people interested in rhododendrons and azaleas can communicate and cooperate with others via its publications, events, local and regional meetings and international conferences. ARS chapters are located throughout the United States and Canada and in Denmark, Finland, Holland, Scotland, Sweden and Sikkim.  "At-large" members reside in countries around the globe, including Australia, New Zealand, Korea, Japan, Thailand, Brazil, France, Germany, Latvia, Poland, Russia, and South Africa.

The Portland Chapter of the American Rhododendron Society cordially invites you to attend our next meeting at 7:00 pm on the Third Thursday of each month from September through May. We meet at All Saints Episcopal Church, 4033 SE Woodstock Boulevard in Portland, Oregon.
