Marie Selby Botanical Gardens has been designated a Smithsonian Affiliate, joining a national network of museums, educational and cultural organizations in sharing the resources of the Smithsonian Institution. There are currently 213 affiliates in 45 states, Puerto Rico and Panama. Selby Gardens is the only garden in Florida that is part of the Smithsonian Affiliate network.

Smithsonian Affiliations is a national outreach program that develops long-term collaborative partnerships that share Smithsonian collections, build networks and engage learners of all ages with Smithsonian resources. Affiliates also have the capability of bringing Smithsonian artifacts, exhibits and programs to local communities.

Selby Gardens CEO Jennifer Rominiecki will accept the honor at the 2019 Smithsonian Affiliations National Conference in Washington, DC at the end of June.
