You can help!

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.


You can help connect people to nature today with your gift to Pacific Bonsai Museum. Your support of the Museum’s work to care for this premier collection will make a world of difference.
