Share Holden Forests & Gardens

Give your friends or loved ones a gift they can enjoy throughout the year. A Holden Forests & Gardens membership provides free, year-round admission to both of our campuses including admission to the Kalberer Family Tower and Murch Canopy Walk at the Arboretum and seasonal shows such as Glow and Orchid Mania at the Botanical Garden. Membership also includes dawn-to-dusk access to the Arboretum, discounts on classes and store purchases, and free admission to nearly 300 participating gardens, arboreta and conservatories through the American Horticultural Society’s Reciprocal Admission Program

Please know that we can no longer guarantee mailing prior to the Christmas Holiday. An online purchase provides a receipt that can be used as the membership gift, but the gift card offers a lovely, tangible gift you are able to take with you.

To purchase a gift membership, click here or stop by either campus to pick up a gift card.
