Membership Benefits

A membership at The Nat is a way to stay connected to the natural world around you and experience all that makes San Diego such a unique and special bio-region. Membership supports our efforts to document and preserve our findings, so that we may share with future generations this amazing place we call home.

In appreciation of their support, members receive free general admission, digital guest passes, discounts on purchases and ticketed events, and invitations to special member-exclusive events. Memberships last for 12 months from the date of purchase.
