We invite you to join us by becoming a member of the Friends of the Wild Flower Garden, Inc. By becoming a member you will join a diverse group who have recognized the value of this small patch of land and wish to honor the vision of an extraordinary woman, Eloise Butler, who first sought to preserve it over a century ago.

Membership in the Friends can be attained for as little as $15 per year. All memberships are on a 12 month basis from the month of joining. Life membership is available for a membership payment of $500 or more. The Friends are a 501(c)(3) entity and all memberships are completely tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. Members receive the Friends newsletter, The Fringed Gentian™, published three times per year and rights to participate in the annual meeting held in May. The Fringed Gentian™ is available by post or e-mail - e-mail only to non-U.S. addresses. Administration and fund raising expenses for The Friends average less than 5% of revenue, thus most of your membership money goes to our mission to protect, preserve, and promote the interests of the Eloise Butler Wildflower Garden and Bird Sanctuary.
