Annual Plant Auction — 24 April at 7:00 P.M.

A wide variety of plants and trees will be available! Donations come from various plant nurseries, pond plant gardens for aquatic turtles and horticulture/agriculture schools. Members will also provide their specialty homegrown plants.

Plant donations will consist of a large variety of California native plants, "tortoise friendly" plants, cacti and other succulents, exotic plants, hard-to-find plants, trees, shrubs and pond plants for aquatic turtles.

This is a Chapter fundraising event so that we may continue our mission to care for and find forever homes for our "shelled friends," as well as providing education/outreach programs to the public.
