Become a Member of Friends of Boone County Arboretum

Friends of BCA

Inspired by trees and seeds already planted, Friends of Boone County Arboretum sprouted in October, 2002. It is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization created to support and promote the Arboretum as a living museum.

Friends members are advocates for the Arboretum in the community at large, showing others the value of this unique resource. Friends seek to create community awareness and participation at the arboretum by involving schools,

sporting groups, community organizations, individuals, the business community, and garden clubs. These groups can become involved through memberships, donations, and active volunteer projects. Membership in this non-profit organization is a commitment to the education of people of all ages in the Greater Cincinnati area.

Monthly meetings are designed to keep members up-to-date with Arboretum events, explore new gardening ideas, and provide opportunities for networking.

Help maintain and beautify the grounds at the Arboretum

Many members are also dedicated volunteers, donating countless hours each year to help keep the Arboretum plant collections healthy. Members also contribute to planning and building future projects and additions to our facility. All these efforts will ensure enjoyment and educational opportunities for future generations.

Provide Valuable Program Input

Members have more opportunities to be directly involved in the planning and implementation of many Arboretum events and educational programs.

Arboretum Day, Dogwood Days Dash 5K Run, school field trips, and continuing education classes are just some of the events where volunteers have a key role.

Membership Benefits

Basic memberships include a subscription to our quarterly newsletter, “The Four Seasons”, invitations to special members–only events, discounts or free admission to events with a fee, and receive a 10% discount card that can be used at several participating local nurseries and garden stores in Boone County.

Join today and help ensure the future of Northern Kentucky’s only arboretum.
