Exploration Green will return that commitment to you, its members.  Depending on the membership level selected, members will enjoy receiving Exploration Green’s digital newsletter, stickers to publicly show your support, priority registration for volunteer events, and private, members’ only tours conducted by Exploration Green’s volunteer Texas Master Naturalists.

For those who would rather not get stickers, hats, and the like, Exploration Green always appreciates regular donations.  Please visit our Donate web page for giving options.


If you would rather give of your time rather than money, please visit Exploration Green’s Volunteer web page.
