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. Our club is 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 June Drought Tolerant Plant Festival is one of the highlights of the year.

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.
