Introducing Corporate Memberships at the Garden

By Jaron Blaine

Did you know Santa Barbara Botanic Garden has its very own Corporate Membership Program? We’re happy to announce that we’ve relaunched the application, and the new membership packages are now available. When you become a corporate member, you can provide your employees with an incredible opportunity to access California’s natural wonders through our 78-acres and more than five miles of trails and native plant garden displays. We invite you to show your company’s support for California conservation while enjoying all the benefits a membership to the Garden has to offer.

How is Corporate Membership different from a regular membership?
