Founded in 1970, the Ann Arbor Bonsai Society is an active group that meets regularly and holds workshops throughout the local community. Its mission is to "promote knowledge, appreciation, and practice of the art of bonsai to its members and to the general public through meetings, lectures, workshops, exhibitions, publications or other means."
