Oregon Bamboo Association


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, bamboo sheets which have become an especially cool item lately, 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. One excellent resource is The Best Bamboo Guide.

We sponsor lectures, conferences, tours, plant auctions, and hold at least four meetings and try to produce at least four newsletters per year. Our next even will be a visit to a manufacturing facility for bamboo pillows and bamboo mattress products and other bamboo bedding. We'll include details on dates and times and costs (really just for gas and food) on the events page soon. We'll also send out all of the info via e-mail to everyone who is on the list. Hopefully everyone will be able to make it to the event!
