Patrons Circle members represent donors who make annual contributions starting at $1,500 to fund education, scientific research, exhibits and plant conservation programs that celebrate the beauty of the desert and help our community care about it.

A benefit of Patrons Circle membership includes a schedule of programs designed especially for members, providing special access to the Garden’s exhibits, horticulturists, educators and scientists.

View the 2021-2022 calendar of events and experiences, published July 2021.
