Orchids & Onions

Preservation Idaho is dedicated to preserving the state's historic and cultural resources through education and advocacy. Their annual Orchids & Onions awards program celebrates those individuals and organizations that have made a positive contribution to historic preservation, and in turn, to bring awareness to those projects which have shown an insensitivity to historic preservation.
