June 2020 Meeting Canceled

The Board of the Santa Barbara Cactus and Succulent Society sadly cancels the June 2020 meeting due to the current Stay Safer at Home directive from our Governor. We hope that all of you are staying safe and healthy.

We look forward to being able to resume our regularly scheduled meetings.
