Monthly Programs

The Eugene Bonsai Society provides great learning experiences for enthusiasts of all skill levels. Following each monthly meeting, attendees may take part in a program demonstrating some aspect of bonsai cultivation and maintenance. Its a great way to learn more about the hobby we love and foster camaraderie between members and friends. Below is a list of the Monthly Programs you can expect in 2017:
