Participating gardens, arboreta, and conservatories offer reduced or free admissions, discounts on gift shop purchases, and/or special events that you can enjoy. Your MPA membership offers you perks from Alaska to Wyoming, and beyond.

As one of our traveling members reports:

“This reciprocal admissions program is a huge member benefit. I used it just a few weeks ago to gain admission for my family to the Desert Botanical Gardens in Phoenix. I nearly paid for an annual family MPA membership with the money I saved at the Desert Botanical Garden!”
