The Willamette Valley Bonsai Society meets the second Tuesday of each month and serves a wide area of enthusiasts.  We do not meet for one month in the summer (usually August) when we select a weekend date for our annual picnic and in December. Our meetings are held in the Willamette Heritage Center located at 1313 Mill St SE, Suite 200 in Salem, OR (at 12th street). All meetings start at 7:00 p.m. although many members take advantage of our ‘Social & Snack” half-hour which starts at 6:30 p.m. Assistance with member's bonsai is also available during the 6:30 p.m. to 7:00 pm social time.
