What we're about
This is the Texas Chapter of the American Bamboo Society. It is a membership group, however, we encourage volunteers and non members to join us every 3rd Saturday of the month, at Zilker Botanical Gardens, 2220 Barton Springs Rd. Austin, Texas, from 9:30 am to noon - in the Taniguchi Japanese Bamboo Garden/Grove to learn more about our group and what we do. It is the opportunity for people to get involved with the cleaning of the grove at Zilker to help rejuvinate, learn about bamboo species, and responsible propagation. The objectives of the American Bamboo Society are to: Provide information of the identification, propagation, use, culture and appreciation of bamboos. Promote the utilization of a group of desirable species for distribution to public gardens and to the general public . Provide plant material for research in the taxonomy, propagation, and culture of bamboo species. Support bamboo research in the field.
