The Cascade Cactus and Succulent Society of Washington State (abbreviated CCSS) began in the early 1970s as a study group. We’ve continued this philosophy in our mission to educate ourselves and others about these unique plants. We are also committed to the conservation of cactus and succulents in all parts of the world. Growing cacti and succulents in the moist Northwest is a challenge, one we have taken on with passion. We enjoy sharing our plants, strategies, and stories with others.
As a membership organization, we hold monthly meetings and activities for members. The meetings at the Phinney Center are open to non-members. Please see our program schedule for the most up-to-date listing of what’s happening in our club. If you are interested in joining, our Join Us page has information on how to join as well as membership fee information.
