In an effort to be more environmentally-conscious, Ladew Gardens now requires that all Ladew members present their membership cards in the Visitors Center upon each visit. When you receive your new membership card, please place it in your wallet so that you will have it with you when you visit Ladew. We will no longer have member rosters in the Visitors Center or at event admission tables, so it is the member’s responsibility to provide status of membership upon arrival.
