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

Come and Join Us!
Welcome to the website of the Los Angeles Cactus and Succulent Society. Proudly celebrating our 80th Anniversary this year.. Our members are comprised of diverse individuals from throughout the southland who share a passion for cacti and succulents. We meet monthly in the San Fernando Valley to enjoy stimulating presentations, hands-on workshops, plant sales, mini-shows, raffles, trading, and other activities. In addition, we offer field trips to member gardens, nurseries, and private collections. To serve the greater community, we recently upgraded the Cactus and Succulent Garden at the Sepulveda Garden Center by planting many new species. Our  Drought Tolerant Plant Festival is one of the highlights of the year. Mark your calendars for the festival May 30 and 31, 2015.

We eagerly share the joys and benefits of collecting and cultivating cacti and succulents to new hobbyists. We invite you to attend our general meetings on the 1st Thursday of each month at the Sepulveda Garden Center in the San Fernando Valley. We hope to see you at a meeting soon.
