HOW MEMBERSHIP SUPPORTS THE MISSION

Members are crucial to our work, as the funds from your membership will help us maintain and preserve lands, active farms and agricultural land, and waterways, as well as provide trails on our public preserves for all to enjoy! Here are a few ways your membership supports TLC and our mission:

  • Memberships fund our environmental education programs for children and our community, as well as funding stewardship on our preserves.  Every level of membership is important to our mission. 

  • Funding for our programs depends on the number of active memberships. Foundations and potential partners want to see that the community believes in what we do before they invest in our work and programs. By becoming a member (or renewing), you can help increase our grant funding. 

  • TLC has served locally as a voice for land, water, and wildlife conservation for 26 years.  We have worked diligently to preserve open space, wildlife corridors, and the natural landscapes of our local community.

  • Members receive free or reduced admission to TLC’s year-round programs and events and invitations to special members-only programs.
