Every year, nearly 1.3 million people visit the Garden’s 27 gardens and four natural areas situated on 385 acres on and around nine islands. In addition to the Garden itself, the organization is known for its science, horticulture, and learning programs that are dedicated to shaping how people value, perceive, and care for the environment. It takes hundreds of highly skilled staff to bring this beauty to life each year. Your support of Lightscape Preview will ensure that the Garden continues to offer people a place to relax, unwind, and reconnect with nature.

Amounts in excess of $75 per person may be considered a charitable contribution. Due to IRS regulations, contributions from IRAs, donor advised funds, or private foundations should not be utilized for any portion of a ticket purchase.
