Benefits of membership

As a paid-up CVN member you can participate in 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 .

Membership fee

Annual household membership: $30.00
(for one or two adults plus any children age 18 and under, all in one household)

Day membership: $5.00
(to participate in members-only activities for a single day)

Annual memberships run for the calendar year. The day membership fee covers our payment to BC Nature for liability insurance.

If you are already a paid-up member of BC Nature (either directly or through another club), your annual membership is eligible for a $16 discount.
