While working at the Visitor’s Center front desk recently, I received a phone call from a taxi driver who said that a member of Adkins Arboretum had left her wallet in his cab and that the only identifying item was the owner’s Arboretum membership card. I quickly looked up the member in our database, gave her a phone call, and passed on the number of the cab driver, who returned the wallet.
The owner’s husband remarked that he was glad Adkins still gives out a membership card when so many places are doing away with them.
What’s in your wallet? A passport to year-round immersion in nature…and other benefits you may never anticipate.
