Want to buy plants?! This is the best plant show to select from the greatest variety of carnivorous plants. We recommend you bring some cash. While most vendors happily accept credit cards, some of the best hobbyists are there selling their extra plants and since this is just their hobby, they don’t have the ability to take credit cards.

Visit the BACPS Show & Sale Page for more details, including how to enter or sell plants.

BACPS Annual Potluck! August 17th, 2019

Meet Up At California Carnivores
2833 Old Gravenstein Hwy
Sebastopol, CA 95472

BACPS Annual Potluck

Starts at Noon*
Presentation: Usually around 1:00

Bring food (if you can) a smile and hang out!

Speaker: Every year we find some famous speaker and this year one of our favorites is coming back for a visit! Fernando Rivadavia will be speaking. He’s not share what it’s going to be about yet, but you can bet it will be worth it!!!

Some helpful hints:

*Don’t figure you will leave a little late and arrive at noon or 1:00!
There is always something that creates a traffic jam.

Enjoy the day, get to the Sebastopol area between 10 and 11, and
if you really don’t want to spend the whole day with a bunch of crazy CP people, there is lots to do nearby.

Bring food to share if you can!

Bring the kids!

Bring your wallet! (California Carnivores always puts on there best show for this!)

Join us for our spring meeting at the UC Botanical Gardens at Berkeley! We will be holding general elections at the meeting.

If you are interested in running for a position, you must submit a brief candidacy statement by February 17th. See our newsletter for more details.

The main event is the plant division workshop and trade! Join us and bring your extra Sarracenia divisions and Nepenthes cuttings to trade! Not sure what to do? Learn at our workshop how to properly divide Sarracenia and take Nepenthes cuttings and root them. Bring any plants that need to be divided, and consider sharing or trading some divisions with others!

Go to the BACPS Facebook Group Page to tell people what you wish for and have to trade! Selling is OK too but we encourage the more fun of trading! Here is the link to the BACPS Facebook page:

BACPS members will not have to pay entrance fee for the botanical gardens. Let the kiosk staff know that you are here for the BACPS meeting. Limited parking is available in the parking lot adjacent to the Botanical Garden ($1 per hour). Carpooling or alternate transportation is encouraged.
