Become a Member

Did you know that the majority of our programs, including tours of our nature center, are free? We are able to offer free programs because of our dedicated volunteers and members, who understand and appreciate the importance that nature plays in our quality of life!

Like any non-profit organization, we need your financial support. Your membership will help us continue our efforts to inform and educate the public about the importance of preserving and protecting our unique natural resources here in North San Diego County. All donations are tax-deductible, and are used to maintain our Nature Center and to further our chapter’s mission to provide nature-oriented education and activities for our members and the community.

We’re always looking for new volunteers, too, and think you would find it to be a worthwhile and rewarding experience.
