Flint River Iris Soc members work on iris beds in front of the Griffin City Welcome signs
The Flint River Iris Society is a non profit organization dedicated to irises, the "flowers of the rainbow," and its members who love them. We are part of Region 5 of the American Iris Society. We meet eight months of the year and are involved in many community projects such as:
supporting the UGA Research and Education Garden by maintaining the Iris beds and participating in such events as the Scarecrows in the Garden;
sponsoring an Iris Show each April;
helping with beautification of Griffin, the Iris City of Georgia;
sponsoring an iris photo contest in the Spring;
selling Irises at the Farmer's Market during the summer months.
