Tiny Tree Adventures: Bonsai Museum Tour & Discussion
How can a 200-year-old tree thrive in a small pot? At the U.S. National Arboretum’s Bonsai and Penjing Museum, we’ll answer this question and more about trees “planted in a container” — the literal translation of “bonsai.”
You’ll get an overview of bonsai and the aesthetics, development, and maintenance techniques required to keep up this timeless living art form before taking a tour of the museum’s tiny trees and learning how to select and care for bonsai of your own.
Please bring a blanket, a folding chair, or whatever you need to sit comfortably on a grassy surface.
