Ask Elaine: Membership Benefits

I went to the May plant sale at Laurelwood Arboretum. There were so many beautiful plants! I had a chance to walk around and decided to join Friends of Laurelwood Arboretum. What are some of the opportunities and benefits of being a member, besides the 10 percent plant sale discount (much appreciated)?
