McCrory Gardens Membership



Help Us Grow!

We invite you and your family to become Friends of McCrory Gardens and support this spectacular horticultural resource. Since it was established as a public garden in 1965, McCrory Gardens has long been considered one of the jewels of Brookings and the region. With the recent addition of the McCrory Gardens Education & Visitor Center, the Gardens are now a year-round destination.

Your contribution as a Friend helps to maintain and enhance the gardens. Your membership will support the planting and care of the 40,000 flowers, trees and shrubs that are planted each year. It also will support the education of our students and the research and outreach programs of our staff.

If you love the outdoors, want to learn more about gardening and plants that will thrive in our area, or just want to stroll through a beautiful, peaceful setting, become a Friend of McCrory Gardens today.

And remember - a membership to McCrory Gardens makes a wonderful gift for a friend or family member!
