    Volunteer Opportunities

    Learn more about the exotic world of orchids and be a host to enhance our visitors’ experience – we welcome your talent and enthusiasm!

    The SBIOS mission is to share the joy of orchids through experience and education at our annual show in March. Visitors come from all over California and beyond for one of the longest running and premier international orchid shows in the United States. What enhances our visitors’ experience is the warm and welcoming presence of our volunteers!

    Volunteers take tickets, monitor doors, staff the plant hotel, and help with other duties at the Show. Your help is vital to the success of the Show!
