New memberships or renewals are welcome at any time, but memberships are for the calendar year, January 1st through December 31st.  Joining or renewing before the beginning of a new calendar year will ensure that members receive all the benefits of membership for the entire year.

First-time members who join after July 1 and before October 1 will be eligible for that year’s membership at half the yearly rate. The membership will be in effect until December 31st of that year and entitle the new member to all benefits for the second half of the year, including the opportunity to exhibit in the Autumn exhibition at The Morton Arboretum.  After October 1, only full memberships for the following year will be accepted.

New members will receive membership materials through the mail and information by email. Member information will not be shared in any way by the Nature Artists’ Guild outside of the Guild. For questions, please contact us through the form on the About page of this website.
