San Diego Carnivorous Plant Society meetings are a live forum to discuss all things carnivorous plants. Members range from those just getting interested in CPs to those who can probably answer any questions you might have. Meeting topics and discussions will be directed by all members, so if you want to show off/trade plants, give a presentation, help coordinate a workshop, or just sit back and digest information, it is highly encouraged. There will always be a handful of plants for sale or trade at every meeting (sometimes even an entire carnivorous smorgasbord!!). 

Meetings at Balboa Park entail a $3 suggested donation per person. Please bring a snack or beverage to share.

Meetings are bi-monthly to alternate with the LACPS schedule.
