The Belwin Conservancy is a nonprofit organization and the annual support that our members provide is one of our most important sources of income. Through donations, our members ensure that we can do our important work year after year.

Thanks to our members, we are able protect land, restore endangered native ecosystems, and inspire our connection to the natural world. Over the years, this support has allowed us to build a protected preserve nearly 1,400 acres in size, bring over a quarter-million students experience the wonders of this place, and restore over 500 acres of native tallgrass prairie.

With only a donation of a $1, you can count yourself as a member of the Belwin Conservancy. The main benefit to being a member of the Belwin Conservancy is knowing that you are supporting our work. Still, we enjoy thanking our members with a unique slate of activities intended to provide an opportunity for you to come out and experience this place firsthand.

All Members: Any Amount!

With any donation, you are a member of the Belwin Conservancy. All members are invited to seasonal events held at our education center including a winter open house, a spring open house, and a fall event which includes our Annual Meeting. These member days provide an excellent opportunity for you to get outside and explore the Belwin Conservancy at different times of the year.

During our annual meeting at the Fall Event, we like to share what's been keeping us busy for the past year. We also want your feedback!

All members also receive our newsletter, The Meadowlark and are issued members cards that identify you as someone who is making a difference in their community. We hope you'll carry yours with you.
