Growing Our Community One New Member at a Time
We’ve enjoyed a banner year at PCEI. We’ve put a ton of effort into planning meaningful education programs, restoring at-risk stream ecosystems, hosting fun parties and events, and keeping up with maintenance at the PCEI Nature Center and Rose Creek Nature Preserve.
To maintain and grow our programs, we also need to maintain and grow our PCEI community. Memberships help us improve PCEI’s natural spaces, provide more stellar events, and deliver more educational programs. Plus, a strong membership base gives us more credibility and strength when applying for grants. Please consider joining the PCEI community.
