Welcome to the Area/Newcomer

Giving a Bernheim membership will provide your favorite family, friends or co-workers:
• Year long access to the majestic splendor of Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest –a distinctive destination for outdoor family fun, a magical place to rejuvenate the spirit and one of the region’s most valuable natural resources. Your recipient will enjoy unique Bernheim experiences in every season:
• Bernheim’s beautiful landscapes including over 8,000 specimens of trees and shrubs from every corner of the world.
• A great setting for leisurely strolls or rigorous, day-long treks with over 35 miles of trails at your choice.
• Innovative programs and exhibits to challenge the kid in you – to stretch the imagination, intellect and create a stronger bond with nature for you and your family.
• Bernheim’s award-winning green Visitor Center – a building that creates oxygen, absorbs carbon and inspires sustainability in everyone.
• Bernheim’s breathtaking Canopy Tree Walk, 75 feet above the forest floor.
• The simple pleasure of absorbing the sights and sounds of our natural landscape in the spring, summer, fall and winter.

Your gift membership of $50 or more (click here to view levels and benefits) to Bernheim keeps on giving throughout the year, through visits to Bernheim and reciprocal benefits at botanical gardens and nature centers across the nation. Bernheim’s newsletter, the forest echo, is a quarterly reminder of your thoughtfulness and a great information source of all what is available at Bernheim, and year-round free admission and discounts in the Garden and Gift Shop and on educational programs will please all the nature lovers on your holiday list.

Mail or fax our printable .pdf gift membership form, call 502.955.8512, ext. 236 or email Gaye Franke or stop by our Visitor Center to give the gift of Bernheim. Is your gift of Bernheim Membership a holiday gift? Ensure timely delivery by purchasing prior to the second Wednesday of December.

Your donations are always tax-deductible. Please consider a gift to Bernheim’s general fund any time of the year as well, whether or not you give a gift membership.
