Help us conserve the land and scenic views you love!

How Membership Supports the Mission

Members are crucial to our work, and help us maintain and preserve lands and trails for you to enjoy! Here are a few ways your memberships supports the mission:

  • Approximately 200 registrations per year, including renewals, provide roughly $15,000 in revenue. As a non-profit, every bit makes a difference!
  • Funding can vary greatly depending on TLC’s number of active memberships. That’s because foundations and potential partners want to know that the community believes in what we do before investing in TLC’s mission. Just by becoming a member and renewing, you can help increase grant funding for conservation!
  • TLC was founded within Southern Chester County to serve as a voice for conservation, which means your active membership works to preserve the natural landscapes of your own community.
