Nature Center Memberships

Your membership dollars help support the wetland sanctuary and the Nature Center’s exhibits, meeting spaces, gift shop, educational animals including Liberty, a non-releasable Bald Eagle, nature education programs for all ages, school and scout programs, research and conservation projects, printing of the bi-monthly newsletter, and the maintenance of 6 miles of hiking trails that are open to the public from dawn until dusk daily.
