Digital Membership Cards

Easy-to-Use Membership Cards

Digital Membership cards provide you with access to all of your Membership benefits without having to wait for your card and guest passes to be mailed to you. They also reduce our environmental impact.

See below for questions about our digital Membership cards.

What are Digital Membership Cards?
Digital Membership cards are eco-friendly membership cards accessible from your smartphone’s Apple Wallet or Google Wallet Passes. After joining or renewing your membership, you will receive an email within 5 days that will provide you with a unique link to download your digital Membership card. Guest passes will be emailed separately.

How do I add the Membership card to my iPhone?
You will receive an email with a link to download your digital card. Access the email from your smartphone and click the "Download" button, then click "Add to Wallet" and "Add." The card will automatically go to your iPhone’s Apple Wallet. It can be accessed in Wallet at any time.

How do I add the Membership card to my Android phone?
The card saves to your phone wallet. Android users need to download Wallet Passes from Google Play. You will receive an email with a link to download the digital card. After you have the app, access the email from your smartphone and click “Download” in the membership email, and the card will automatically go to your Wallet Passes app, where it can be accessed at any time.

I downloaded my card but I can’t find it.
If you have an iPhone, the card will automatically download to Apple Wallet. Check the app for your new card (scroll through any cards that are already there--it may be hiding!). If you have an Android, you’ll need to download Wallet Passes from the Play Store prior to downloading the card.

I am unable to access or download a digital card.
Please email or call 718.549.3200 ext. 220 for more information.

My family member is on this membership account also, how can she/he receive the card?
Navigate to the back of the card (click the small “i” on the front) and use the “Share Pass” button to send the card to your secondary member. For iPhone users, you will find the share icon at the top right of the Digital Card.

Will I receive my caregiver or elder-care card in my digital wallet?
When joining or renewing a Family/Dual, Senior, or Senior Couple membership, please indicate the name of the family caregiver or elder-care representative to include them on the membership record. You can use the ‘Share Pass’ button located on the back of your digital card to email your card.

I have a question about my membership benefits.

Please view our website for general membership information, then email with any additional questions.

My name is spelled wrong/membership level is incorrect.
Please contact with the correct information to update your membership records.

What if I want to use my reciprocal benefits at other gardens?
Your digital card lists participating locations and can be presented to other institutions as proof of membership. Always be sure to check with our partner organization and institutions for the most up-to-date information on their reciprocal admission policies.

What if I purchase this membership as a gift?
You will be able to indicate the email address of the gift recipient(s) upon purchase and the link will be sent directly to them.

What if I change phones or lose my Digital Membership Card?
Please email us at so we can resend the link to your Digital Card.

What if I can't find the email for the digital card?
Please email to receive a new email.
