Membership Benefit - Reciprocal Admissions

Visited any great botanic gardens lately? Did you use your Friend’s membership card? Superintendent Lesley Parness recently visited Hillwood Garden in Washington DC. She and her family saved over $40 by showing their Reciprocal Admission Card. The admission fee was waived and she received a discount in their charming gift shop!

A complete list of Reciprocal Admission Gardens can be found by clicking here. Please email us with your “Reciprocal Admission travels” to share with other members.
