We all need nature – maybe now more than ever.

This Earth Day, we can’t gather for a hike at an Oak Heritage preserve, but we can do something together: we can encourage conservation in southeast Indiana.

Check out this fantastic video where our members invite you to celebrate Earth Day by joining Oak Heritage.

Earth Day Membership Drive

We want to welcome 50 new members to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. Every new member who joins at the $40 level (or above!) will receive a limited edition EcoSmart Oak Heritage t-shirt (picture below).

Almost 300 families have joined Oak Heritage over the years. If you’ve been one of our supporters, thank you. We’re inviting you to renew your membership today. Moving all membership renewal dates to Earth Day will help us be more efficient – and it’s easy for you to remember. After all, it’s a special day for nature lovers like us!

And of course, renewing members can can also purchase a t-shirt to show your passion for nature. Wear it on your next hike, and you can help spread the word about Oak Heritage, even from six feet away.

We know that the timing is a little strange given the Corona virus – that things feel uncertain and that times might be tight for you and your loved ones. But one thing is certain: We all need nature. Let’s join together to support the natural world that we love.

But don’t listen to us – listen to our members. Their video says it better than we ever could!
