RECIPROCAL ADMISSIONS

AMERICAN HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY

2012

New RAP Participants & Notes on Back Cover New participants added to the online version mid-year, and added to the full version at years end.

Participating Gardens, Arboreta, and Conservatories Your membership card is your passport to America’s garden treasures. Receive special admission privileges in addition to discounts on gift shop purchases and special events at horticultural organizations throughout North America.

2012MEMBERSHIPDIRECTORY How a Participating Garden’s Members Reap the Benefits A current membership card from the American Horticultural Society or a participating garden entitles the visitor to special admission privileges and discounts at many different types of gardens. In addition to the Reciprocal Admissions Program Directory, a complete list of participating gardens can be found on the AHS website in the online directory (www.ahs.org/rap). The AHS provides the following guidelines to its members and the members of participating gardens for enjoying their RAP benefits: How to Enjoy the Benefits of the Reciprocal Admissions Program • Gardens participating in the program have a wide range of admission policies. Before visiting any garden, check the garden’s website or call to verify hours of operation, confirm RAP benefits, and get the latest updates on programs. • Some special events are not included in the reciprocal benefits of the program. If you have any questions please contact the garden before you plan to visit. • Present your current membership card at the admissions counter or gift shop to receive the RAP benefit(s) listed for that garden. Each card will only admit the individual(s) whose name is listed on the card. In the case of a family, couple, or household membership card that does not list the names, the garden must extend the benefit(s) to at least two of the members. In this case, gardens are encouraged to refer to their own policies regarding household/family memberships. Some gardens may require a photo ID. • The RAP Local Exclusion Guideline excludes members of gardens within 90 miles of one another from receiving the benefit(s) unless the gardens mutually agree to lift the exclusion. For AHS members, the exclusion is based on their home address. Please contact the garden you belong to or the garden you plan to visit to inquire about this guideline. • Remember that the gardens you visit rely on admissions and donations to maintain their collections and gardens for all to enjoy. Please support them by visiting their gift shops or making a contribution. • Some gardens included in the RAP Directory have no benefits to reciprocate because they are already free to the public or do not have a membership base. These gardens help to preserve and maintain the Reciprocal Admissions Program through their contribution but they do not share a reciprocal relationship with any of the other gardens listed. Be sure to check the symbols next to each garden to determine the benefits offered.

AS A 2012 SYMPOSIUM ATTENDEE YOU WILL BE ABLE T0:

JULY 19-21, 2012 • Headquartered at the University of Maryland, College Park

 Hear from students, educators, and leading national experts as they relate how to nurture fertile minds and communities through innovative programs, activities, and curricula

For its 20th anniversary, the American Horticultural Society’s National Children & Youth Garden Symposium returns to the Greater Washington, D.C. area to celebrate two decades of promoting teaching and learning in the garden.

 Participate in the only national symposium that explores how to use the power of plants and gardens to create inspirational educational programs for children and young people

The University of Maryland, located just outside of Washington, D.C., will serve as our home base for three dynamic days of workshops, lectures, poster sessions, and field trips. Founded in 1856 as a private agricultural college and now flagship of the state’s higher education system, the University of Maryland with its tree-lined central mall and Colonial Revival architecture is a fitting location for us to reflect on where we’ve been, share our accomplishments, and propose for the future.

 Share your own ideas, success stories, and dreams with teachers, public garden administrators, garden designers, youth program leaders, and children’s gardening advocates from across the nation  Visit River Farm, the American Horticultural Society’s national headquarters in Virginia, and experience the pioneering children’s garden that provided inspiration for the first symposium in 1993

In 2012 we’re coming back to where it all started -- the perfect way to celebrate the Symposium’s 20th anniversary and rededicate ourselves to the vital role of gardens in the lives of today’s youth.

 Be immersed in the rich history, diverse culture,

and wonderful beauty of our Nation’s Capital
