Enter a gate to view a selection of trees lovingly trained and nurtured by our members.
Nature hosts a multitude of trees for man to ponder.
They span the globe and touch the sky with roots tucked firmly under.
Yet only man has tamed their growth and set them by his home,
To gaze upon and to reflect, with mind that's his alone.
The art of bonsai includes more than shaping trees. Enter these gates to explore other aspects of the art form.
The blade, the leaf, the petal, seed,
Nature builds with these.
To populate the earth with plants,
Exotics, grass, and trees.
A pot contains, restrains, maintains
The plant for our display.
Yet never serves as a distraction.
From the main attraction.
The San Diego Bonsai Club maintains a permanent collection at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. Enter the gate below to view some of the collection. Then go see the pavilion in person and don't forget to check out the animals as well.
