Perennial Partners Recognition Week

Perennial Partners Welcome Week


Hello Perennial Partners! 

Thank you so much for your loyal support of The Morton Arboretum as a member for 10 or more consecutive years! That is an achievement you can be proud of. 

Each year, at the end of August, the Arboretum hosts a week of recognition and celebration just for you. This year, we moved the week of on-site activities and programming to an online, digital format. This decision was made with care. Your health and safety was our greatest concern.

Consequently, this year’s Perennial Partner Recognition Week provided a series of  complimentary online programs available below. You can enjoy these presentations by Arboretum experts at your leisure and convenience.

In addition, we mailed vouchers for you to shop with an increased discount at The Arboretum Store, and a complimentary coffee, tea, or a fountain drink from the Ginkgo Café. The really good news: your vouchers are good through July 31, 2021

If you have any questions, please call the Membership Hotline at 630-719-2453 or connect with us at membersmail@mortonarb.org

We are truly looking forward to reconnecting with you in person when we are able to do so safely. As always, thank you for being a tree champion!
