Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Red Butte Garden made the difficult decision to cancel its 2020 concert series. For many, the concerts may be their main reason for holding a garden membership. This year’s season presents an excellent opportunity for those concert-focused individuals to explore why they should renew their membership.
1. Members have year-round access to the garden, which includes safe and accessible paths to exercise, enjoy nature, and experience the beauty of living landscapes.
In an effort to keep staff and visitors safe, only members can access the garden at this time. Check the Red Butte Garden website for information about when it will open to the general public. For members, make online reservations and find COVID-19 guidelines online here.
2. Membership fees provide support of continuing maintenance and care of the garden we all love.
3. Members have unlimited access to all 100 acres, including themed gardens and the natural area.
4. Conservation and research projects, including a collaboration with Utah Diné Bikeyah Traditional Foods Program, are supported in part by membership revenues.
5. Each spring, members get early-bird registration—and discounts—for youth programming.
6. Revenue from memberships supports scholarships for children from underserved communities to attend summer camps.
7. Members get discounts on adult education classes, including Cooking with Purnima and Yoga in the Garden with Kristin.
8. Your membership helps fund Utah classroom programs like Botany Bins and Grow Lab, which served almost 7,000 Salt Lake County students last year.
9. With revenues from memberships, Red Butte Garden is able to employ staff and U students that keep the garden growing year-round.
