Welcome to the Chinle Cactus & Succulent Society

JOIN US

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 challenging local climate.

New Videos

Two of our recent club presentations are now available for viewing on YouTube. “Cacti et Cetera along the Old Gordon Trail” by Don Campbell and “The Great Convergence” by Don Campbell and Sara Hein.

What We Do

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 Education Outreach activities where we connect with the community to share our passion and knowledge about cacti and succulents. The club can also be contacted to help in plant re-homing — indoor cacti or succulents sometimes get too big for their space or too big a chore to maintain. We may also be able to assist with garden rescues if outdoor cacti or succulents no longer fit your landscaping needs.

Monthly Programs

Each month the Chinle C&S Society provides a program to members and guests.
