A membership to the Preserve is an invitation to discovery and wonder. With every hike through our natural lands or walk through one of our three beautiful gardens, you will experience something new to delight and inspire you. Come to re-discover the interconnectedness between people and nature; come to recharge and restore yourself; come to appreciate the tremendous care and attention that goes into every aspect of land stewardship and preservation. Our beautiful historic lands become yours to experience and enjoy.

Membership Levels & Benefits

Membership Explanations

  • Discounts of $25 for Dogwood, and $50 for Forget-Me-Not memberships are available to seniors aged 65 and older, full-time students, year-round MDI residents, and active military. 

  • Membership fees are tax deductible, except for the Abby Garden visits, valued at $15 each. The Preserve will provide a tax receipt that subtracts the value of the benefit from the total membership contribution.

  • For donors wishing to make membership contributions from donor-advised funds, please note that you likely need to waive the non-deductible membership benefit of free reservations to Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Garden. Questions about the policies of your specific Donor Advised Fund can be directed to your fund advisor.

  • Visits to the Abby Garden require a reservation through the Preserve’s online system. We ask that members at all levels make a reservation. Membership benefits, including free visits, are valid for the annual duration of the membership; they cannot be carried over.

  • Members will receive an account number to use for the reservation system. We do not mail cards or passes.

  • All membership sales are final.
