Become A Member

Join the Seven Ponds family - become a member today!


The members of Seven Ponds provide extraordinary support for the nature center's activities. Without our members, we couldn't present programs for thousands of children, offer weekend activities for adults and families, or maintain nearly 500 acres of woods, lakes, ponds, marshes, fields, and prairie. Your financial support is necessary to continue these important services.

However, there is much more to membership than the satisfaction of giving children an unforgettable outdoor experience. A membership at Seven Ponds Nature Center is like having year-round access to your own very special place.
