The Austin Cactus & Succulent Society promotes the interest, study, propagation, conservation, and public awareness of cacti and other succulents.
Founded in 1975, ACSS is a member of the Texas Association of Cactus & Succulent Societies (TACSS), and volunteers maintain the cactus and succulent beds at Zilker Botanical Garden.
ACSS hosts two shows and sales each year, one in the spring and one in the fall. We have occasional field trips to ranches and nurseries to observe succulents both in habitat and in cultivation. We have an extensive library of cactus and succulent publications, which is available for members to use. Membership also includes a subscription to the Cacto-Files, our monthly newsletter.
ACSS is currently holding Zoom meetings which are open to both the public and ACSS members. We boast an impressive membership of 140+ and welcome anyone to come check out a meeting and join our diverse group of cacti enthusiasts!
