Los Angeles Cactus and Succulent Society
 Los Angeles Cactus and Succulent Society
Meeting in the San Fernando Valley.

LACSS CELEBRATES 80 YEARS!

Welcome to the website of the Los Angeles Cactus and Succulent Society. Our nearly 200 members come from throughout the southland and share a passion for cacti and succulents. This year, LACSS is celebrating its 80th birthday with special events and publications. Throughout LACSS history, many of the most prominent researchers, authors, and collectors of the succulent world have been leaders and members of our society. 

LACSS meets monthly in the San Fernando Valley to enjoy stimulating presentations, hands-on workshops, plant sales, mini-shows, raffles, trading, and other activities. In addition, LACSS offers field trips to member gardens, nurseries, and private collections. We serve the greater community by offering free educational activities, upgrading the Succulent Garden at the Sepulveda Garden Center, and presenting an exciting annual show. 

In order to share the joys and benefits of collecting and cultivating cacti and succulents, we invite you to check out our general meetings at 7:00 pm on the 1st Thursday of each month at the Sepulveda Garden Center in the San Fernando Valley. Attendance is FREE, and each visitor receives a free plant! We hope to see you at a meeting soon.
