Canoeing through wetlands

Together we can help make a greener future

By becoming a member, you take a direct role in protecting the natural heritage of our community. Your membership fees and donations make the Conservancy’s work possible and contribute directly to the protection of our rich, natural heritage.

There’s strength in numbers. With a growing membership, our organization is in a better position to work with potential grantors to provide the necessary funding to help with conservation efforts.

There are several advantages to membership:

  • You will receive our electronic newsletter
  • You will be eligible to vote at our annual meetings
  • You will become part of your community’s efforts to protect its natural heritage directly
  • Sense of pride and ownership each time you visit one of our properties
  • Meet other nature lovers who are dedicated to protecting our irreplaceable landscapes

Membership continues to be a core part of the Conservancy. Members are the base of our collective success, as voting members and supporters. We appreciate every person who chooses to become a member or renew their membership every year. As our membership program has not changed in well over five years, our Membership Committee looked at ways to evolve our membership and grow support for land trust work. This past spring, we surveyed a number of members on suggested changes and starting January 1st, 2020, our membership program is evolving:
 
  • Membership Rates: $40 for an individual member and $60 for a family membership.
  • Term: 12 months rather than a calendar year. So if you donate on July 2, 2020 your membership term is July 2, 2020 to July 1, 2021.
 
Reminders:
 
  • You will receive a charitable receipt for your membership.
  • If you renewed your membership in the 2019 calendar year, you are entitled to vote at the upcoming Annual General Meeting.
  • Monthly Supporters can allocate a portion of their gift to membership.
  • You can allocate a portion of your annual donation to membership.


 

Individual membership: $40                 Family membership: $60
