Due to the pandemic SCCSS is not charging for membership at this time. If you were a member in 2020 you are still a member. All being well we expect to restart membership dues in January 2022.
The monthly Zoom meetings are open to non-members.

Please note that membership to the South Coast Cactus and Succulent Society (SCCSS) does not include membership to the South Coast Botanic Garden where we meet.  Membership to the garden can be purchased at
