Give the Gift of Membership

Looking for a unique gift this holiday season? Give your loved ones the gift of nature! Our yearly memberships make a special gift for your relatives and friends. Plus, through December 14, 2019, earn amazing prizes for yourself by purchasing a gift membership!

Purchase your gift membership over the phone or stop by in-person. We can even
mail the membership materials directly to the recipient. Also, buying a membership
is tax-deductible for you, even though you're giving it as a gift.


Memberships are valid one year from the date of purchase. You also have the option of purchasing a Membership Gift Certificate which can be redeemed by the recipient at their convenience, so that the membership is valid one year from the date of redemption instead of the date of purchase.

Take a break from your hectic college schedule & enjoy much needed relaxation in nature. Our botanical garden is also the perfect place to study in peace.



Sometimes nature is best enjoyed when you're by yourself, just you and the trees. Feel refreshed after some satisfying alone time in the quiet woods.



Whether you're a parent or grandparent, our botanical garden is the perfect venue for unplugged quality time with your loved ones.
