For thousands of years, humans have studied trees to learn how they too can provide suitable housing for squirrels and grow lemons from their fingertips. Join the pursuit of leafy progress with today’s Groupon: for $50, you get a supporting-level membership to Cheekwood Botanical Garden & Museum of Art (a $135 value). The membership includes the following:
- One year of unlimited admission for two adults and their children (18 and under)
- Reciprocal admission to nearly 200 gardens and 60 museums throughout the Southeast.
- Complimentary parking<p>
Cheekwood’s assemblage of botanical gardens stretches across more than 55 acres of verdant land, inviting members to explore its natural nexus of wooded streams, gentle pools, and stone grottoes. Visitors can appreciate Mother Nature’s leafy hairline by weaving through Japanese, wildflower, and perennial gardens and cruising down avenues of crepe myrtles in lilac-powered lowriders. Green-thumbed guests can also admire each display’s unique gardening style and exchange salutations with bursting seasonal flora. Guests can venture inside the 30,000-square-foot Georgian mansion to find Cheekwood’s collection of decorative arts and Visions of the American West, a Wild West exhibition on display until May 4. The video-installation galleries explore Buffalo Bill’s life and his legacy as Wild West icon and fearsome ventriloquist.
To enrich the minds of botanical brethren, supporting-level members receive invitations to member-only events, as well as 25 percent discounts and priority registrations for classes, workshops, and children’s camp programs, and a subscription to Cheekwood’s quarterly magazine, Inspire. Members can also use four single-visit guest passes to share their outings with friends, Romans, and country mice.
