Tucson Bonsai Society Logo Tucson Bonsai Society

Our Society was formed in 1972, and has held meetings, classes, and exhibitions every year since. We are affiliated with the Golden States Bonsai Federation in California, and our teachers have been certified by that group. We sponsor at least one California bonsai teacher as our guest artist, each year in February.

Our monthly meetings are open to the public for a lecture program, followed by workshops for our members. We meet at the Tucson Woman’s Club, 6245 E. Bellevue, near Wilmot and Speedway, unless otherwise noted in our events calendar. Our classes and exhibitions are held at the Tucson Botanical Gardens on Alvernon.
