Legacy Giving Society Benefits

Annual membership gifts close the gap between our daily operating costs and our admission fees.  Members of the Botanical Garden enjoy free admission for a full year during regular operating hours in addition to other generous benefits.
Our Legacy Giving Society is comprised of donors who recognize the importance of higher-level donations to continue to help us expand our programs and offerings to reach more in our community and beyond.
