What Is Membership?

It means you share Steven's Vision for Western Lands Preservation and want to help him get there, for your future benefit, and for the benefit of future generations to come.

Today, Western Lands Preservation, does not own a single acre of land.  But this will not be for long, for the response of companies and individuals.  Each member is instrumental in this effort.

Help preserve Western Lands for you and future generations with a renewable membership, which lets you say, "I was there when Western Lands Preservation was just a gleam in Steven's eye."

A Note from Steven on Your Membership

Dear Members and Not-Members,

Thank you for considering a Western Lands Preservation Membership.  WLP is just starting out, so each each member means the world to us.

But a forewarning:  As a member in these early stages, you will not gain any benefits apart from my quarterly report.  I've just started WLP, and as a result, I don't have much to offer you.  We don't even have a single acre of land to preserve.  Not one acre!  But that means signing up for a membership now has so much more of an impact.  You will get to be with us and our vision since the beginning, and the tradeoff will be that you won't get many benefits...

At least not until WLP grows bigger.  As we expand, you'll be able to see those benefits we wish we could give to you now.  Things like members'passes to our nature preserves, invitations to our annual dinners, or courtesy gifts from our expanding product line.  Without help from others who care about nature, these things may never come to pass.

I can't do anything more than make promises, but we will never forget the people who help us out from our very beginning.

—  Steven Whitney
