Is admission to the Huntington included or do we have to pay for it separately at the gate?

Also, anyone want to car pool from Vista area?

Pat, tell them at the gate you are with the Palm Society and they will waive the usual admission fee. I'd offer to car pool, but I'm driving up a day ahead. Hope to see you there.
