Welcome to the Eureka Chapter
Welcome to the Eureka Chapter of the American Rhododendron Society (ARS)! Rhododendrons and Azaleas combine for over 900 plant species. With so much to learn and discover, the Eureka Chapter enables members and plant enthusiasts to focus and increase their plant knowledge through our fun and informative programs, expert speakers, field trips, volunteer opportunities and more!
The membership is comprised of very knowledgeable rhododendron experts, professional gardeners, commercial growers, botanists and a mix of passionate members who range from ardent hobbyists to novices. Our chapter has a strong association with the ARS organizational body, evidenced by member appointments for district directors (we are in District 5, currently Tim Walsh is our very active member and district director) along with members serving on committees at the ARS level. Our chapter has a handful of bronze, silver and gold award recipients selected by the Society.
We encourage you to browse through our site and perhaps navigate to the membership section to join as a member with the Eureka Chapter. It is a wonderful association in which to learn and mingle with our members. Please review our upcoming programs and events as shown on our calendar. Consider attending, guests are welcome!
