Gift Membership

Share your love of nature with family or friends! It’s an inspiring gift that gives all year long. When you give a membership, you help to foster a connection to nature and community in your friends and family. Together, we can inspire conservation and protect our natural treasures for future generations!

A membership to Cincinnati Nature Center makes a great gift for employees, clients, or business partners. We offer a special discount to businesses interested in purchasing 20 or more memberships. Please contact Laura Schmid at lschmid@cincynature.org  or (513) 831-1711 ext. 416 if you are interested!

Important Holiday Gift Membership Information

Purchase a gift membership anytime from November 1 to January 2 and your gift recipient will receive a voucher for a free enamel mug!

The enamel mug is not mailed. We provide a voucher to redeem it at the Membership Desk in the Rowe Visitor Center. The voucher expires February 28, 2022. (If you would like the mug voucher, during the checkout process please select that the gift membership be mailed to the Gift Giver and not the Gift Recipient.) 

After you purchase a gift membership, please allow two weeks for membership materials to arrive in the mail. To ensure materials arrive by Christmas, please order your gift membership by December 15.

All gift memberships purchased in November will have a December 31 expiration date. This way, if you wait until Christmas to give the gift, your recipient won’t miss out on a full 12 months of membership.

We allow you to choose where a gift membership is mailed—the Gift Giver or the Gift Recipient. When you choose the Gift Recipient, we send the voucher to the Gift Recipient.

Core Membership Benefits

All Cincinnati Nature Center members enjoy:

Nature Center Memberships

Below, we've listed the several membership levels that are available to serve the needs of individuals, couples, and families. For only $23 more, you can purchase a +1 Guest level, which allows you to bring a guest anytime you visit. This flexible option is ideal for households with caretakers. If you would like to bring more than 1 Guest, consider a Steward, Cornerstone, Patron, or Krippendorf Society level.

The 2-Year membership is greener and more cost-effective. You get 10% off both years, you won’t receive renewal notices for 2 years, and you’ll get a member card good for 2 years. It helps us save paper, postage, and plastic!
