The world's biodiversity is declining at breakneck speed. If we do nothing, more and more plant species will disappear. That's why at Utrecht Botanic Gardens we explore the fascinating world of plants and share our knowledge with a wide audience. Together can we stop the loss of biodiversity in our world. As a Friend of the Botanical Gardens, you contribute to important projects on nature education and biodiversity in the Gardens. Help too! Friends always have free admission.
As a Friend of the Botanical Gardens, you will receive a Friends Pass. This gives you free access to the Gardens. There are two types of Friendship:
- Personal Friend Plus | € 50,- per year | free entry for two people
- Personal Friend | € 35,- per year | free entry for one person
We also organise activities exclusively for Friends and at some selected activities in the Gardens, Friends get a discount or something extra.
