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.
