The benefits that come with being a member of The Nature Foundation at Wintergreen, include discounts on plant sales, events, hikes, tours, and the satisfaction of knowing you are making a difference in the world.

Our members are the primary way The Nature Foundation at Wintergreen funds its efforts. The work being done at the nature center is more than preserving and maintaining over 6,000 acres of Blue Ridge Mountain land area for research and educational programs or providing habitat for native plants and animals. Members also support high-quality educational programs for adults and children about the region's natural history. Our programs reach out to the general public, enrich regional school programs, host undergraduate and graduate internships, and bring hands-on learning to teachers' fingertips. The nature foundation members are what makes and keeps Wintergreen's mountain ecosystems a continuing success story.
