What is a Grow Native membership?
Membership is, quite simply, a thank you for making an annual gift of support. We do not require people to be members to participate in the vast majority of our programs. We pride ourselves for operating on an "open source" model, offering exceptional resources and learning opportunities to the world completely free of charge — this website, our Evenings with Experts lectures and videos, and many other programs. But we depend on your voluntary contributions to do all of this work. Through your charitable gifts, you make our programs possible. We show our appreciation by offering you member benefits, and this also connects you to many others who care deeply about our mission. Together, we are all learning to be better stewards of our earth, and how best to protect biodiversity and the beauty of life as we know it. Together, we become a strong community and are a force for meaningful change in the world.
