Community Membership FAQs
Does the Community Membership reciprocate with other nature centers?
No. The Community Membership is not eligible for reciprocal benefits. It is only intended for use at Cincinnati Nature Center.
Can my clients register for Nature Center programs at the discounted member price?
Community Membership allows up to 12 employees or clients to participate at the discounted member price.
My organization serves more than 12 clients. How can we accommodate more people?
The Community Membership admits groups up to 12 people per visit. This includes your employees and clients present. Consider bringing different clients with each visit. To accommodate a larger group, you will need to purchase additional daily admission at the regular rate. Or alternatively, you could purchase an additional Community Membership for your organization.
