Financial Report and Registrations
Basic dues are $18 but we will not deny membership to those who cannot afford our regular membership dues. For students, senior citizens or individuals with limited income, a contribution of $10 or more will renew your membership for another year. Members who renew at $18 or more will receive one year (four issues) of Rails to Trails magazine and discounts on Rails-to-Trails Conservancy (RTC) merchandise.
Contributions over the basic membership dues are greatly appreciated and are used for general operating funds. Rails-to-Trails Conservancy is grateful for the support it receives through bequests.
