Feeling thankful for nature?

Nature provides us with countless gifts — fresh air, clean water, beautiful places to explore, improved wellbeing. Looking for a way to give back? Here are three simple yet meaningful ways to support local natural areas:

Become an ACRES member

Together with our members, ACRES protects over 7,200 acres of land, preserving unique natural formations and providing habitat for plants and animals. Become a member with a donation of $20 or more. It takes just two minutes to donate online.

ACRES membership comes with perks!

  • Invitations to members-only events like a wildflower hike with a botanist and outings on closed preserves
  • Subscription to the Quarterly, a 20-page, full-color publication featuring local nature photography, ACRES news, stories and events
  • Peace of mind knowing that your gift helps ACRES protect and care for local land

Share ACRES with a friend or loved one

Invite a friend or family member for a walk in your favorite ACRES preserve or bring them to an event like one of our First Hikes to ring in the New Year!
