Support NBNC

"Countless Vermonters have discovered birds and butterflies, orchids and otters, relaxation and contemplation at this place by the river. And now, with a vision to connect even more of us to wildlife and wild places, North Branch Nature Center will move from greatness to virtuosity — not only here in Montpelier but far beyond as well.”

— Brian Pfeiffer, writer, naturalist, and educator

How You Can Help

On behalf of all of us at North Branch Nature Center, thank you for your support! You help us connect people to nature in enriching, inspiring ways. Here's how to contribute:

By becoming a member, you'll both support your local nature center and receive great member benefits including program discounts. Join using the form on this page, or click here.

2. Contribute to the NBNC Resiliency Fund.  North Branch Nature Center is an organization that has historically depended on social gatherings to connect people with the natural world. As the COVID-19 pandemic affects our communities, NBNC is seeking extra support to continue operating and adapting. Your gift makes possible our new NBNC Online portal, full of enriching content from our Teacher-Naturalists and partners. To contribute, click here.

3. Gift Certificates.  Give a friend or family member a birding outing, a BioU class, or any other NBNC program with a gift certificate

4. Other Ways to Give. NBNC gratefully receives gifts of stock or property, planned gifts, and bequests. Click here for detailed information.
