Buses4Bonsai Fund

Transportation is the number one barrier to teachers who want to bring their students to the Museum for a special bonsai field trip. Buses4Bonsai will help bring hundreds of school-age youth to the Museum to learn about bonsai, nature, and art. The fund provides $100 stipends to all field trips to help offset the costs of bus transportation, with the goal of eventually being able to pay for 100% of bus transportation fees. All gifts are very much appreciated.
