The Bay Area Carnivorous Plant Society Annual Show and Sale is next weekend (6/8/19). We'll see you there!
The 12th International Carnivorous Plant Society Conference will be held in Santa Rosa, CA from August 3-5.
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to hear lectures from prominent researchers and enthusiasts from all over the world.
In conjunction with the ICPS Conference the Bay Area Carnivorous Plant Society will be holding its annual Show and Sale on the grandest scale to date.
Attend the banquet dinner at California Carnivores. A chance to dine among Carnivorous Plants the likes of which you've never seen.
The conference field trip will, of coarse, be headed to Darlingtonia country to witness the beauty of the Klamath Mountains and its flora. Expect to see Darlingtonia californica, Drosera rotundifolia, and Pinguicula macroceras growing wild in their unique habitat.
The Bay Area Carnivorous Plant Society is the oldest Carnivorous Plant Society in the USA. Founded by some of the legends of the Carnivorous Plant Community, the BACPS has always been fortunate to have some of the most renown Carnivorous Plant enthusiasts in the world as members. Without the BACPS, I doubt I would be growing Carnivorous Plants today. The BACPS holds meeting throughout the year at several locations including the botanical gardens at the University of California Berkeley, The Conservatory of Flowers in Golden Gate Park, the prestigious nursery of California Carnivores, and several local libraries in the South and East Bay Area. Then there is, of course, our outstanding annual Show and Sale at Lake Merritt in Downtown Oakland. Don't miss it!
The next meeting of the BACPS will be:
Saterday, June 8th at Lakeside Park Garden Center, Oakland, CA. It's the Annual Show and Sale. It will be an epic event featuring: A plant show featuring indescribably beautiful carnivorous plants of all sorts, an auction of show quality carnivorous plants, a carnivorous plant raffle featuring many must have CP's as well as many, many representatives of well know CP nurseries with a wide range of CP's for sale. Not to mention, Lake Merritt, which is a beautiful attraction within itself, housing a variety of garden areas including a bonsai garden. Don't miss it!!
