April 2020 meeting canceled … but we will still plan some April activities for you


Because of the COVID-19 situation, effective Mar-18th, Olbrich Gardens has suspended all public access and any scheduled classes or meetings until at least April-30th …

therefore we   WILL   NOT   have a meeting of the Badger Bonsai Society on Thursday April-9-2020.

Agenda of April activity (you need to do this on your own):

  • Wayne has prepared a document to allow you to rank the Japanese collection of the National Bonsai Museum, as we did with the North American collection at the February meeting. This will give you plenty of time to perform a personal ranking, and submit to Wayne (via the website Contact Us form by April-27th) … then, we can review the ranking at a BBS meeting in May — or at a minimum in the May newsletter … we will still need your individual participation and feedback though.
  • on-line slide show of Derek’s recent visit to Omiya Bonsai Village in Japan …
    hopefully with Derek’s narration or commentary included  … is going to be deferred to May meeting or website posting
  • review blogs and videos and compile your favorites for collection on website

Apr-2020 BBS Newsletter … needs PDF reader

Best and Safest wishes to all our members and followers !!!
