THE OREGON BAMBOO ASSOCIATION HAS CEASED OPERATIONS.
The Oregon Bamboo Association is no longer in operation. We are maintaining this website for historical reasons.
We are an independent chapter of the American Bamboo Society. We serve as an educational and reference source to the public about bamboo, its many uses and relationships to society, and are a non-profit organization. Our programs are open to the public and are free. We also hold joint meetings with the Pacific Northwest Chapter of the ABS, and share information with many of the other National Chapters.
If you have an interest in Bamboo, its ornamental cultivation, its growing and propagation, its use in crafts, art, construction, food, management, ecology, reviews of bamboo pillows, and just about anything else you can think of, our membership will try to help you. If we don't know the answer, we will try to give you some references.
We sponsor lectures, conferences, tours, plant auctions, and hold at least four meetings and try to produce at least four newsletters per year. The next planned events are to a manufacturing facility producing bamboo sheets and bamboo mattress products and reviews.
