*Reciprocal Membership Privileges

The American Horticultural Society's Reciprocal Admissions Program offers free or reduced admission and/or additional benefits at over 300 gardens throughout North America and the Cayman Islands.
Reciprocal admissions apply to organizations beyond a 25 mile radius from Texas Discovery Gardens. Because of our proximity, we are not reciprocal with the Dallas Arboretum.
The Fort Worth Botanic Garden is reciprocal with Texas Discovery Gardens -- this includes admission to the conservatory and Japanese Garden within the FWBG.
