2017 Monthly Meeting Schedule

The Living Art Bonsai Society meets on the first Tuesday of the month at 7:00 pm
in the Nature Center Room at the The Huntsville Botanical Garden
Everyone is welcome!

Meeting Parking Update

Beginning April 1, Huntsville Botanical Garden (HBG) will be making some changes in access to facilities and the hours it is open.

Phil Terry has been in contact with the HBG staff member in charge of these changes, and she has been extremely helpful and accommodating. While HBG will officially close at 8:00 p.m., we can still have use of the Learning Center until 9:00 p.m. on meeting nights, so we won’t have to adjust our schedule as some societies may have to do.

Parking will change a bit. The HBG representative has told Phil that the Fire Marshall is very clear that there is to be no parking in the area by the door and loop at the back of the building because parked cars would limit access to the building by emergency vehicles.

We still can use the drive and circle to load and unload, but we will need to park outside the gate in the gravel lot, anywhere that does not block the gate.

Following the business session and adjournment of the formal meeting, bonsai work sessions
(bring a tree of your own to work on, or to discuss with other members) are held every other meeting night,
alternating with presentations on bonsai-related topics.
