Green Spring Gardens, Friends of Green Spring (FROGS)
We'd like to turn you into a frog!
We invite you to join one of the regions's most active and supportive friends groups. With the help of FROGS, Green Spring Gardens is one of Washington, DC's most exciting public gardens and a national historic landscape. Green Spring is accredited by the American Association of Museums and is widely recognized for the quality of its gardens and educational programs.
What is FROGS?
The Friends of Green Spring (FROGS) is a non-profit (501c-3) organization that supports the educational and horticultural programs of Green Spring Gardens. Through membership dues and fund raising projects, members of FROGS support new and existing gardens, the Children's Corner, the horticultural research library and Green Spring's annual Winter Lecture Series.
