Membership Information

The Lakes Region Conservation Trust relies on generous support from members and volunteers to continue our work of conserving additional special places in the Lakes Region and stewarding the region’s natural heritage.

Gift Memberships for New Members

Each recipient will receive a gift membership packet containing a welcoming letter notifying them of the gift, a copy of the most recent edition of LRCT’s newsletter, a summary of conserved lands, a guided excursions schedule, and information about LRCT’s conserved properties and trails.  Throughout the year, the gift recipient will receive the newsletter, notices of upcoming events and activities, and member discounts.

A gift membership can be purchased for $35, or another larger contribution amount of your choice.  The person giving the gift will receive a letter acknowledging the charitable contribution.

LRCT can mail the gift membership packet directly to the gift recipient, or the packet can be mailed to you for giving the gift in person.
