Love Adkins! We were there yesterday and saw a Red Tailed Hawk and two Bald Eagles fly right over our heads! Check out a discovery back pack and learn a thing or two with your kids.

We live in Ridgely and I did not know anything about the Arboretum really and just assumed it was a nursery to buy plants I read about it on Groupon and wanted to check it out and since we were having houseguests thought it would be a nice outing I bought the 4 adult outing and we went I was pleasantly surprised to see how nice the grounds were with walking trails, benches to sit on, picnic tables, an audio to listen to learn about the various trees and plants and even goats to observe although not to pet It is such a peaceful setting to go for a walk, observe the foliage and different activities offered as meet your interests We bought a family membership at a discounted price through Groupon for a year and have been back several times to go walking and are always greeted by friendly staff and there is a shop there and also coffee and tea to drink for a donation We are looking forward to attending a Christmas caroling party including hayride, bonfire, live music, appetizers and more and are bringing friends and 2 kids with us This is a paying ticketed event We are looking forward to a festive time and meeting new people I definitely recommend it as a place to go

Membership card is not issued upon redemption, but instead will be mailed to you within 2-3 weeks. (So do not plan to go to any other reciprocal arboretum or garden for about a month after Groupon redemption.) This is a very nice gardens with many activities scheduled for this spring and summer, of which I am looking forward to being able to attend a couple of them.

This is a wonderful facility and special amenities for members. I can't wait to go back and do more exploring of the 400 acre property and attend special functions. We were immediately welcomed when we arrived and shown the main building, given information regarding the year round events, functions and brochures regarding other tours that are available. Take a bike or even your dog along for the outdoor adventure. This is a pet friendly facility.

Adkins is my favorite place on the Eastern Shore-- I was so glad to have the opportunity to get this family membership through Groupon-- I couldn't afford it otherwise, and now we hope the visit more often! Thanks!

Make sure to allow yourself enough time to explore the grounds and still make it to the nursery before they close at 4! Everyone there was very nice.
