Rhododendrons Love the Comox Valley

The North Island chapter of the American Rhododendron Society is based in the beautiful Comox Valley.  Serving the surrounding communities of northern Vancouver Island,  this ARS chapter is a welcoming place to enjoy rhododendrons and azaleas.  Our regular meetings occur on the second Tuesday of each month (except May thru August) at the United Church in Comox – 250 Beach Drive.
