Stolen Bonsai Returned to Pacific Bonsai Museum
Feb 12, 9:30am: We are pleased to report that the two bonsai stolen from our secure, public exhibition space on Sunday, February 9, have both been mysteriously returned to the Museum. Read the full press release.
Japanese Black Pine (Pinus thunbergiana) stolen from our display on Sunday, February 9.
Silverberry (Elaeagnus pungens), stolen from our display on Sunday, February 9.
Many of you have asked what you can do to help since we shared the news that two bonsai were stolen from our public display and many of you have suggested improvements to security systems. One of the most appreciated things you do is to make a donation to the Museum to support the collection. When you join us in taking a stand for bonsai, you help us strengthen our collection.
Our Kickstarter campaign to fund the publication of our first-ever book about our collection, A Gallery of Trees: Living Art of Pacific Bonsai Museum, was a success! That means that printing will go forward and we expect to have the books ready to ship by spring 2020.
We are currently taking pre-orders for books to ship next spring.
Free, guided tours of the exhibit are offered every Sunday at 1pm. No reservations required.
