For more than 50 years, the Friends of Birmingham Botanical Gardens has worked side by side with the City of Birmingham Park and Recreation Board to fulfill the promise of world-class botanical garden by providing impactful educational programs and outreach, promoting the stewardship and enhancement of the Gardens, spearheading marketing and communications, and raising funds to support these efforts.   

Become a member of the Friends of Birmingham Botanical Gardens and you’ll join with others who share your passion for the natural world. As a Friend of the Gardens, you keep one of Birmingham’s most important and beloved cultural institutions growing—strengthening our community while enriching the lives of all who visit.

As a member of the Friends, you’ll be first to know about all the great things happening at the Gardens; get special “insider” information about this special place, its people, and plants; and be able to take advantage of valuable member benefits. In addition, you can take comfort in knowing you’re a part of a vital organization that is dedicated to serving the Gardens, serving our visitors, serving our community, and inspiring a passion for plants, gardens, and the environment.
