Membership Program

Based on member feedback, we’ve revised our membership program to give you more of what you love best: being out in nature! Now our membership program offers four educational hiking excursions each year, one each quarter. Most often, these hikes are to remote areas of Pepperwood - areas typically not open to the public.

In addition, members are invited to two behind-the-scenes special events each year. These events range from updates from our President & CEO to intimate get-togethers with scientists discussing today’s most important conservation issues.

Finally, members receive early registration on all Pepperwood courses and workshops and a discount of at least $5 on those with a fee.
