    New Gardens added to the AHS Reciprocal Admissions Program

    February 12, 2018 - The American Horticultural Society's Reciprocal Admissions Program (RAP) now comprises 320 gardens, arboreta, and other cultural sites, thanks to the addition this year of twelve new ones. RAP began in 1990 to encourage visitation to the wealth of gardens and green spaces across North America. A current membership card from the AHS or any of the participating sites entitles you to benefits such as free admission and special discounts. A complete list of participating sites for 2018 can be found on the AHS website in the online directory at www.ahsgardening.org/rap. Printed RAP Guides are also available for purchase.
