Reciprocal Admissions: The Wonderful Landis Membership Benefit that You May Not Know About

By Wilma Jozwiak

It’s true — being a mem­ber of Lan­dis Arbore­tum at any lev­el can mean free or reduced admis­sion to one of over 345 amaz­ing gar­dens and arbore­ta in North Amer­i­ca! And in many cas­es, also free park­ing and a dis­count in their gift shop. 

Because Lan­dis is an orga­ni­za­tion­al mem­ber of the Amer­i­can Hor­ti­cul­tur­al Soci­ety, you as a Lan­dis mem­ber have access to AHS’s Rec­i­p­ro­cal Admis­sions Pro­gram. You can, for instance, enter the Coastal Maine Botan­i­cal Gar­dens or vis­it the Brook­lyn Botan­ic Gar­dens for free, instead of pay­ing $15.00 for adult admis­sion. There are many more, includ­ing some exot­ic loca­tions Amy Howan­sky vis­it­ed a few years ago; you can read about her vis­its here. Click here to read about all the gar­dens that are part of the AHS RAP program.

All this makes a Lan­dis mem­ber­ship a great hol­i­day gift for any fan of pub­lic gar­dens and arbore­ta, regard­less of where they live!
