Member Decals

Your LRCT member decal will be hole-punched to indicate the month in which your contribution was received. Your LRCT membership runs through the end of that month in the following year.

LRCT member decals are a great way to show that you support the work that LRCT does. LRCT member decals are also required to visit our Rattlesnake Island Preserve on Lake Winnipesaukee and must be displayed on your boat when visiting. 

Gift Memberships

For a birthday, holiday, or other special occasion, make an investment in the Lakes Region’s natural heritage by giving a one-year LRCT membership.

This is a great way to support LRCT’s land conservation and stewardship activities throughout the Lakes Region and at the same time introduce a family member, friend, or colleague to this important work.

The gift recipient will receive a 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 LRCT’s conserved lands, and other information about the conserved properties, trails, and activities.  Throughout the year, the gift recipient will receive the LRCT newsletter, notices of upcoming events and activities, and member discounts.

A gift membership can be purchased for $35 for an individual, $50 for a family, or at a higher level in any amount of your choice.  The person giving the gift will receive a letter acknowledging the charitable contribution for tax purposes.

LRCT can mail the gift membership packet directly to the gift recipient, or the packet can be mailed to you so that you may give it to the recipient.

To purchase a gift membership, please:
