Special Holiday 2-for-1 Offer

At Chadwick Arboretum, our mission is to provide an educational environment to advance the knowledge of students in their horticultural studies and to be a resource for learning about plants for the campus community and general public. We need you to join us in this work.

We’re excited to announce the Holiday 2-for-1 Offer, which is the perfect opportunity to provide someone special with the chance to discover the beauty and joy of Chadwick Arboretum’s gardens and year-round events.  Before December 1, 2015, when you become a member or extend your existing membership for an additional year, we will send a free gift membership to anyone you choose!

Chadwick Arboretum wants you to know your gift will support exceptional work! Here are some of our 2014 accomplishments. 

  • The installation of a vertical Green Wall on the Green Roof on Howlett Hall by students Eric Van Deusen and Tyler Wolf, recent Ohio State graduates.
  • Partnership with the City of Columbus through Branch Out Columbus to join the initiative to plant 300,000 trees in the city by 2020.
  • Educational opportunities and outreach events for students, volunteers, members, and the community such as our Fall Student Events, Arboblitz, Arbor Day, and Earth Day. 

A Chadwick Arboretum membership also includes spectacular benefits, including the following:

  • A 10% discount at more than ten supporting garden centers and nurseries in Central Ohio.
  • Use of the American Horticulture Society’s Reciprocal Admissions Program which provides free or reduced admissions to public gardens across the country.
  • A free subscription to Better Homes & Gardens Magazine.
