Membership Info

Membership runs from January 1 to December 31.

2018 Memberships will be available to purchase online  by Dec. 15th, 2017.

The new system is up and active and we are running a series of live tests to ensure the best user experience.  If you are a current member we have pre populated the system with your information and you will receive an email in the next 2 days with login information.  You will have to follow the link in the email and create your own unique password. You will then be ready and able to update any profile information and renew/change your membership for 2018.  This year you will also be able to choose between the regular membership types and if you use a credit card to pay, you can choose one time or automatically recurring payments.

Another email will be sent to all current members with an invoice that may be paid online and include instruction if you want to register manually (in person) or pay by cash, cheque etc.

If you have any questions please email our developer at White Night Media

Membership Pledge

  • We believe in the wisdom of nature’s design.
  • We know that soil, water, plants and wild creatures depend upon each other and are vital to human life.
  • We recognize that each living thing links to many others in the chain of nature.
  • We believe that continuing research into the intricate pattern of outdoor life will help assure wise use of earth’s abundance.
  • We condemn no wild creature and work to assure that no living species shall be lost.
  • We believe that every generation should be able to experience spiritual and physical refreshment in places where primitive nature is undisturbed. So we will be vigilant to protect wilderness areas, refuges and parks, and to encourage good use of nature’s storehouse of resources.
  • We dedicate ourselves to the pleasant task of opening the eyes of young and old that all may come to enjoy the beauty of the outdoor world, and to share in conserving its wonders forever.
