Membership Has Its Privileges.

November 13, 2020

Since 1874, we have been researchers, caretakers, and storytellers of this incredibly diverse region we call home. Our members have been essential every step of the way.  

As a small token of our appreciation, members receive 10% off purchases on orders of $15+ with an exclusive promotional code when they Shop The Nat. 

Simply enter your promo code at checkout to receive your discount. Your promo code is shared with you in three ways:


  • Included in your Field Notes member enewsletter
  • On the back of your digital membership card, which you can likely find in your e-wallet
  • By emailing 

Not a member? Join today to receive your discount on future purchases and to join our community of environmental ambassadors. 


Who are members?  

Hopefully you are! Or are soon to be. If you’ve purchased membership through The Nat, you’re a member. This does not include holders of third-party admission programs like the Explorer Annual Pass. 


How do I become a member? 

Nice of you to ask. Visit to learn more about becoming a member or to join our community. 

The Nat is a 501c(3) not-for-profit organization and Membership is an important way to support our education programs, exhibitions, and our research and conservation efforts. From rediscovering lost species, to digitizing our collections, and reintroducing the California red-legged frog to our region—we thank you for your support.
