*The Cactus and Succulent Society of New Mexico meets the third Friday of most months in the Patio Room of the Garden Center. Educational and entertaining presentations usually begin at about 7:45 p.m. Visitors are welcome. Please join us to learn more about these fascinating plants, or just enjoy the beautiful pictures of plants and places many of us will never have the opportunity to visit.

Presentations are recorded and made available for a limited time through a link to YouTube on the CSSNM website, http://www.new-mexico.cactus-society.org/ in “Recent Events”
October 15, 2021: Dan Maher, a retired professor from the University of Wisconsin, will talk about the cacti of Brazil. The cacti of Brazil range from tiny plants that grow in rocks to tall columnar kinds that grow into trees. You will be able to see plants in habitat that are commonly grown like Melocactus, Discocactus, Uebelmannias, etc, to the tall columnars like Pilosocereus and many other genera. It is not common to have a chance to see these plants in nature.
November 19, 2021: To be announced. Check the CSSNM website for up-to-date information.
