Membership Levels & Benefits

The Ridges is built on the strengths and contributions of our members. Since day one, The Ridges has relied on our members to help support the three pillars of our mission; Education, Preservation, and Research. We invite you to join us in supporting Wisconsin’s first land trust and protecting one of the state’s most biologically diverse ecosystems. Children 18 and under do not need a membership and always hike free.
