Membership

Your Membership allows us to keep our gates open and our flowers blooming.


Through the generous support of Tohono Chul members, we continue the efforts of Richard and Jean Wilson, who gifted the gardens to the community in 1985 with the hope that visitors would find contentment in nature and gain a new appreciation for the Sonoran Desert and its people. Your membership enables us to grow and sustain our gardens, provide educational opportunities for our members and friends, host community events, and preserve, maintain and share our art and artifact collections.

As a member, you not only gain daily access to our lush gardens, captivating exhibits, and enriching programs but also play a vital role in preserving the unique flora and fauna of this extraordinary region.
