Membership and Giving
Individual & Organizational Memberships
The Ivy Creek Foundation depends on its membership donations to maintain its trails and facilities at the Ivy Creek Natural Area and to design and implement its educational programs. Those who join are the Friends of Ivy Creek. Individual memberships start at $35.00 and Organizational ones at $100.00. If you are already a Friend or Partner, please consider giving a gift membership to a friend, family member, or colleague.
Your membership supports the field trips we provide to over 2,000 local school children annually, the Ivy Talks programs on second Sundays in the spring and fall, the many native flora and fauna walks and talks we lead, and many other programs that connect hundreds of people to nature every year. Additionally, individual members receive a discount on workshops.
