Ways to Get Involved

ACLT members support our efforts on an annual, renewable basis. Annual memberships start at just $35.

Members can purchase tickets to ACLT's Annual Membership Meeting Luncheon or Annual Dinner & Silent Auction. Purchase tickets Online or use our mail-in form.


In addition to membership dues, supporters can make a monetary gift to further ACLT's land protection and land management efforts. You can designate your gift in honor of or in memory of someone of your choosing. You can also make an online donation to ACLT's spring or fall fundraising appeals here. Gifts will be acknowledged by name in ACLT's quarterly newsletter and by an acknowledgment letter, mailed to the address you supply, which will serve as your tax receipt. Please indicate 'anonymous' in the comment section if you do not wish your name to appear in our newsletter. Donate Online or use our mail-in form.


You can give the gift of your time and talents. Volunteer for a single day or an ongoing program. See: Volunteer Opportunities.
