The Central Arizona Cactus and Succulent Society (CACSS) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and an affiliate of the Cactus and Succulent Society of America (CSSA).

Members typically meet once a month to talk about upcoming events, share news, listen to presentations about cacti and succulents and/or travels experiences in search of plants in their native habitats,  acquire plants through silent auctions, etc. Please check the calendar on the website for the date/time/location of each meeting.

In addition, throughout the year, members have the opportunity to:

  • Go on field trips to visit local and out-of-state gardens and plant shows
  • Borrow books from a large club-owned library available at each meeting
  • Enter their plants in an Society Show.

CACSS publishes a monthly newsletter called Central Spine that is distributed through the club email distribution list and also available on this website.

CACSS is grateful to the Desert Botanical Garden for providing meeting space and supporting some of its projects.
