We recommend that you call all gardens on the list before you plan your visit. Some gardens have certain exclusions for special events or exercise the 90-mile exclusion clause, which means they do not have to honor the agreement with members of gardens or arboretums that are within 90 miles of them. Morton Arboretum has exercised the 90-mile exclusionary clause; therefore, we do not have a reciprocal agreement with them.

​Are you a veteran?

​You may want to consider our Honor Club​ program. It's free for veterans and active duty soldiers.
