Help Us Grow!

We invite you to become a McCrory Gardens member and support this spectacular horticultural resource. Since it was established as a public garden in 1965, McCrory Gardens has long been considered one of the jewels of Brookings and the region. With the recent addition of the McCrory Gardens Education & Visitor Center, the Gardens are now a year-round destination.


We now offer three types of memberships (Friends of McCrory, Photography, and, Business).  Our Friends of McCrory and Business memberships include different levels to choose from and our Photography Membership offers the choice between a Yearly Membership or One-Day Permit.

Your contribution helps to maintain and enhance the gardens. Your membership will support the planting and care of the 41,000+ flowers, trees and shrubs that are planted each year. It also will support the education of our students and the research and outreach programs of our staff.
