The Four Seasons Subscription for the Botanic Garden

The publication of The Four Seasons has not been accomplished on an annual basis in recent years. This caused unnecessary confusion and record keeping for the annual memberships to the Friends of the Regional Parks Botanic Garden.

In 2020, it was decided to go back to previous times when memberships in the Friends, and subscriptions to The Four Seasons, were separate. As of January 1, 2020 and going forward from this date, memberships to the Friends will be completely separated from subscriptions to The Four Seasons. Memberships to the Friends will be tracked by the Friends through the Regional Parks Foundation. Subscriptions to The Four Seasons will be tracked by the Botanic Garden with payments made through the Regional Parks Foundation.

Publication of The Four Seasons will take place when an issue is completed – in some cases there may be more than one issue of The Four Seasons published over the course of one year, and in some cases there may be more than a year gap between issues.

If after reading the information on this page, you have any questions about subscriptions to The Four Seasons, please email the Botanic Garden at: BGarden@ebparks.org or telephone the Botanic Garden at: 510-544-3169. Thank you!
