Bonsai experience and education for all, welcoming both beginners & more advanced artists and enthusiasts in the Capital Region

Welcome to The Mohawk Hudson Bonsai Society

Our members share knowledge and experience with one another as well as with the public through demonstrations, visiting artists, and workshops and through our events such as our fall club show where members display their trees.
