April 21: Gary Duke, "On the Cacti Trail in Northern Peru"

Gary will be doing a presentation on his travels in Peru in two parts. On Tuesday, he will cover the southern part of the country for the Cactus & Succulent Society. On Thursday, he will feature the northern part of the country, where he encountered more bromeliads. In his presentation, Gary describes lots of tall columnar cacti that we don’t see very often, especially large ones in the wild and some of the small globular ones as well. He also has lots of pictures of bromeliads, along with scenic views in the Andes plus a bit on the Peruvian culture. Come and see a new perspective of Peru.


Gary Duke has been collecting cacti and succulents since he was 10 years old. He has been President of the South Coast Cactus and Succulent Society and the Long Beach Club in the southern California area. He was recently elected to the Board of Directors to the Cactus and Succulent Society of America. He's an avid collector of cacti and also collects Tylecodons and Dudleyas. He has over 1000 different species in his private collection and enjoys propagating them. He frequently gives slide presentations throughout southern California.
