Welcome to the Chinle Cactus & Succulent Society
We are a Western Colorado club whose mission is to promote knowledge, enjoyment, cultivation, and conservation of cacti and other succulent plants among its members and other individuals and organizations throughout West-Central Colorado. We created and maintain two beautiful cactus and succulent Demonstration Gardens in Grand Junction: one at the Colorado State University Extension office and the other at the Western Colorado Botanical Gardens. These gardens also present xeric and native plants and showcase various garden design strategies that work in our local climate.
In addition to our Monthly Programs, we usually organize a few Field Trips every year, some local and others further afield, to view plants in habitat. We also participate in various Public Outreach activities where we connect with the community and share our passion and knowledge about cacti and succulents.
