Membership Plays a Key Role - Pierce Cedar Creek Institute - A West Michigan Nature Center and Biological Field Station

Members play a key role in helping Pierce Cedar Creek Institute achieve its mission to inspire appreciation and stewardship of our environment. As a non-profit organization, your financial donation helps the Institute maintain its nine miles of trails and 742 acres of property, reach out to West Michigan families through programs that are both educational and fun, and provide field-based research experience for undergraduate and graduate students.

Memberships are tax-deductible, and members receive many benefits including:

An e-copy of Naturally Speaking – the Institute’s quarterly newsletter (printed version available upon request)

Free admission to select programs

Discounts on Sunday brunches and dinners, classes, special events, and programs

Reciprocal benefits at over 140 nature centers

10% off gift shop purchases, excluding art exhibit pieces

Free snowshoe rental

Special recognition and two brunch passes for a Supporting and Sustaining membership. (Fair market value $32)

And, most importantly, members receive the satisfaction of knowing they are supporting stewardship of natural resources.
