Free admission and other discounts at more than 330 public gardens and arboreta across North America via the AHS Reciprocal Admissions Program (RAP)* (*Note: AHS is encouraging RAP Gardens to honor recently lapsed AHS membership cards once they are able to re-open after COVID-19 closures)

“RAP is invaluable to me; in the last few years I have visited 61 gardens across the country. Thank you AHS for maintaining this wonderful program.” –Terry H., Colorado

“This winter, I visited Fairchild Tropical Gardens in Coral Gables, Thomas Edison House and Gardens in Fort Myers, and Selby Gardens in Sarasota. I’ve visited each garden at least two times and thoroughly enjoyed myself. I entered each garden for free because of my AHS membership and saved at least $100 cumulatively on admissions! Thank you, AHS!” — Ellen M., Virginia
