The Florida Botanical Gardens is proud to be a participant in the American Horticulture Society Reciprocal Admissions Program.

Our participation affords our member discounts on admission and other services at over 300 botanical Gardens and arboreta across the U.S., Canada and a number of Caribbean Isles.*

* With the exception of Selby Gardens and Naples Botanical Gardens.

General Guidelines

We recommend that you call all gardens ahead of time before you plan your visit. RAP benefits are only applicable during regular open hours. Make special note if a garden enforces the 90-mile exclusion. Present your current membership card at the admissions counter or gift shop to receive the RAP benefit(s) listed for that garden.
