American Iris Society Region 11

Region 11 which includes Idaho, Montana and Wyoming was established in 1928 when the larger AIS regions were divided into 15 smaller regions.  There are now 134 members in this region including 4 youth members.  All current members of the American Iris Society in Idaho, Montana and Wyoming are members of this region.

The purposes of Region 11 are to develop the science of horticulture and any activities related to the study, propagation and culture of the genus iris;  to stimulate and foster interest in horticultural pursuits, conservation and protection of these plants;  to cooperate with other organizations, public and private, in the scientific and horticultural education of all those interested in learning any phase of the genus Iris, by any and all means which may be determined from time to time by the Executive Board of Region 11.  These means shall include but are not limited to:

Encouragement and support of scientific research, including that pertaining to the solution of diseases related to, but not necessarily exclusive to the genus Iris, and investigation and conservation of the genus in the wild;
Collection, compilation and publication of data concerning the history, classification, breeding and culture of Irises;  and
Education of the public through exhibitions, public display gardens, published standards for judging and local, area, and regional meetings open to the public.

Region 11 was organized and operates exclusively for educational and scientific purposes within the meaning of Section 501 ( C ) ( 3 ) of the Internal Revenue Code.
