There are many ways to support the Gardens, including Membership, Volunteering, Memorials, and donations.

Membership Benefits at Every Level

Mobile Botanical Gardens is a 40 year old institution responsible for maintaining this 100-acre treasure in the center of Mobile with resources committed to education, preservation and aesthetic enjoyment. Numerous gardens, nature trails, and a Longleaf Forest Restoration may be found here, along with an extensive collection of azaleas. The WinterGarden has been named an International Camellia Society Garden of Excellence – one of only a handful in the world. Become a part of the Gardens by joining MBG. Membership provides the following opportunities:

PERSONAL SATISFACTION & CIVIC PRIDE: You will become a contributor of critical financial support for a major civic institution in our city. MBG protects natural elements of our area that might otherwise be lost in the noise and confusion of the modern world.

EDUCATION: You and your family will have access to peaceful natural surroundings and be able to learn secrets of Gulf Coast gardening and horticulture in the fellowship of others eager for the joy of learning and the benefits of knowledge about plants that thrive in our area.

PARTICIPATION: You and your family will have opportunities to stroll among the many gardens, to practice gardening in a marvelous natural setting and to volunteer with like-minded individuals in support of various MBG events and activities.
