<h5 dir="ltr">Timed-Entry Admission Process</h5>

<p dir="ltr">Timed-entry admission ensures an optimized and expeditated member and guest entry process and reduces crowding at the Arboretum. Each member or guest, including children and infants, must have an advance reservation to enter the Arboretum at a specific date and time. Tickets are not available at the gatehouse.</p>

<p dir="ltr">Entry times are honored for one hour after the time on the entry pass or ticket; those who arrive outside that one-hour window may be denied entry.</p>

<h5 dir="ltr">Entering the Arboretum</h5>

<p dir="ltr">After you secure a timed entry pass or ticket <a href="https://buy.acmeticketing.com/events/480/list">online</a>, it will be sent electronically to the email address provided in the transaction process. You can either print it out or show it on your phone to the gatehouse attendant when you arrive. Members must also present their member cards. If members or guests in a group arrive in separate cars, each must have their own ticket or pass to present, either as a printout or on a phone. The gatehouse attendant will scan each ticket or pass.</p>

<h5 dir="ltr">Ensure a Safe Visit</h5>

<p dir="ltr">We rely on you to help the Arboretum remain a safe place for all to enjoy. If you are not feeling well, please refrain from visiting until you are fully recovered.</p>
