Membership

As a paid-up CVN member you can participate in most club activities and join any of the interest groups for no additional fee. Some special activities such as major conferences may require additional fees. CVN members are also automatically registered as members of BC Nature.

Members receive the CVN newsletter by email and communications from BC Nature, including BC Nature magazine .

To join or renew, you need to complete the membership form, including the Informed Consent and Assumption of Risk form (the “waiver”), and pay the current membership fee.
