Charlottesville Albemarle Orchid Society
The Charlottesville Albemarle Orchid Society is a group formed in 1975 for the cultivation and appreciation of the orchid family.
The society has become active in conservation of native orchids by supporting the restoration of Pinkerton Slash, one of the few habitats for the Purple Fringeless Orchid (Platanthera peramoena) in Albemarle County.
The society hosts an annual orchid show at Fashion Square Mall.
