Thank You to Our Donors - and Find Out Why Our New Levels Matter
At the beginning of the year, we introduced the Supporter, Investor and Sustainer levels of membership to give people more options for how to support this community of natural areas professionals, beyond a basic membership or a donation.
Why are these levels important?
Because the costs of providing this community with all of the tools, information and events we do far outstrips the cost of a basic membership, or the registration costs we charge. We do this to ensure that membership and programming is still accessible, and allows us to provide support to the wider natural areas professional community. By joining at the Supporter, Investor and Sustainer levels - or by becoming a Lifetime Member - you're helping to keep this community strong in the face of what we know are strong headwinds.
