Thank you for supporting the Bird, Tree and Garden Club. 'Membership' is open to everyone. Your tax-deductible contribution supports the expenses related to BTG programing, purchase of trees and plant markers, and other eco-friendly efforts. All programs, chats, walks and talks are free to the public as a result of our sole fund-raiser of the biennial House and Garden Tour as well as contributions for 'membership'.

Annual Membership - $25 helps cover program costs.

Life Membership - one-time fee of $150 supports our major projects such as planting new trees at the Arboretum, the Monarch Program, speakers and guides and occasional special projects such as the plant marker fund or ‘nature’ book donations to Smith Library.

Annual Sustaining - donation of $20+ from Life Members.

A Life Member Luncheon is held each August at the Athenaeum Hotel with a delicious meal and a relevant speaker along with conversation among people who love these gardens and grounds, our ecosystem, and our birds!

During the season, you may also become a member by completing an application at Smith Wilkes Hall during one of our many programs, enclosing a check or providing credit card information on line. The Bird Tree and Garden Club is a 501C3 non profit separate from the Institution.

Thank you!
