June Member Events

Aloha to all Garden Members!

Thank you all for supporting HTBG with your membership! Coming this summer, the Garden is planning a couple of very special events exclusively for our Members.


Digital Photography Workshops

Professional photographers Ken and Mary Goodrich of Volcano have been members of HTBG for many years. Their business, Hawaii Photo Retreat, http://www.hawaiiphotoretreat.com offers photo tours and workshops to people who wish to improve their photographic skills.


Most often the perfect setting for this is in the Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden. Whether the camera is an iPhone or a DSLR, Ken and Mary offer tips on composition and exposure, as well as their insights on expressing one’s personal vision through the camera.


Now Garden Members can have a walk-through in a small group with Ken and Mary. They will help you make the most of your photos and offer suggestions. The special member cost for an approximately 3 hour garden photo tour with instruction and informational handouts is $99. We will start at 9am, rain or shine, with a brief introductory prep session.


The first workshop will be on Saturday June 6th and is devoted to getting the most out of your iPhone or Ipad.


The second workshop will be on Saturday June 27th which will be all about getting the most out of your DSLR camera.


Classes are limited to six people so be sure to reserve your spot as soon as possible. RSVP with David or Suzanne at 964-5233 or htbg@ilhawaii.net.

Exclusive Early Evening Horticultural Tour at Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden

The Staff and Board of Directors of Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden are very happy to invite you to attend a Members Only Event on Saturday, June 20, 2015 from 4:30PM to 6:30PM. Please join us for a free Guided tour of the Garden led by Jeff Boggeln, Garden Manager and Sean Callahan, Horticulturist. You’ll learn about the history of Onomea Valley and hear stories from the early days when Dan and Pauline Lutkenhouse created Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden. You’ll also learn some of the history behind some of our plants and have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have.

We want to thank you for supporting the Garden with your Membership by sharing Jeff and Sean’s combined 35 years of Garden knowledge during this exclusive after-hours tour.


The tour will last approximately 1 hour, ending at Twin Rocks, then you will be able to explore the Garden on your own until 6PM. After the tour enjoy some pupus on the Gift Shop Lanai.

This Event is free for our Members, but to ensure the best experience for all, reservations are limited to 30 people.

Please RSVP by June 1, 2015 to David or Suzanne at 964-5233 or htbg@ilhawaii.net.
