The Cascade and Succulent Society of Washington State is an organization that meets generally once a month in the Douglas Classroom of the Urban Horticultural Center at the University of Washington.  Meetings consist of a review of a chosen cactus and succulent, and a program on a subject of interest.  Refreshments are served, and visitors are always welcomed.

 We encourage those who are interested in cactus and succulents to join, and yearly membership is a nominal amount which helps pay for expenses. Skill level is from basic through advanced knowledge.  

Meetings are usually on the third Sunday afternoon of the month at 2 pm.  The Society has an annual picnic, Christmas party, and schedules field trips to observe both cacti and succulents.

The seminar on Saturday, August 21, is Japanese Maples.
