Member Appreciation Day is Selby Gardens’ way of saying “thank you” to loyal Gardens fans whose support helps keep the Gardens growing. This year is extra special because it is also the day of the ribbon cutting ceremony for the Ann Goldstein Children’s Rainforest Garden. Members will get a sneak peek and be among the first to experience the new family-friendly garden feature.
Note: this year the members’ plant distribution and sale will move to the Gardens’ north end near the Christy Payne Mansion.
