Other Activities

We have two show and sales each year, one in the spring and one in the fall. We have occasional field trips to ranches and nurseries to observe succulents in habitat and “in captivity”. We have an extensive library of cactus and succulent publications which is available for members to use. Membership also includes a subscription to The Cacto-Files, our monthly newsletter.

Membership in our society shall be open to anyone having an active interest in cacti and succulents. Our membership includes people of varied backgrounds, ages, and interests. Annual dues are $15 for individuals and $20 for two or more people at the same address. Dues after the July meeting are half price – $7.50 and $10 respectively. There is an additional $5 fee for a mailed, hard copy of the newsletter. Nametags are $20. Click here for more information on membership.
