Individual and Family Membership


Klehm members enjoying the garden landscape.

There are many reasons to become a Klehm member. The first reason, of course, is daily access to Klehm’s 155 acres of signature gardens and woodland beauty of the arboretum. With two miles of accessible paths, people of all ages and physicalabilities can connect with nature on a personal level. Plus, the whole family can enjoy discounted or free child and adult programs, community events and the health benefits of walking and playing outdoors. Your membership support also improves the quality of life in the Rockford region. Public gardens reflect community values and compliment the built environment in ways that attract businesses and economic prosperity.

  • The 90-mile Exclusion policy allows a garden to exclude members of gardens within 90 miles of it from receiving the RAP benefit(s). For AHS members, the exclusion is based on their home address. Please contact the garden you belong to or the garden you plan to visit to inquire about their enforcement of this policy.

Avoid a lapse in membership. Sign up for recurring membership renewal and your yearly membership card and packet will be mailed to you when your membership expires.
