For information about becoming a member of the Aurora Community Arboretum click on: 'Membership Contact' . That'll give you the opportunity for e-mail contact, that can be followed with telephone discussion as required.
Or, you can simply send in a Membership Application form, with payment.
You'll note in the membership application below that we have two kinds of membership.
(You can print the application form, instructions are beside the form.)
'Click' on the small Membership Application to the right. It's a 'pdf' file and will open with your Acrobat Reader. You can then print the form for your personal use.
Members can choose to be active participants or passive donors through their purchase of an annual membership. Those that choose to be active participants work, as time is available, to help the Aurora Community Arboretum meet its goals. This working contribution may be in the Arboretum or in an administrative function. Members will be required to complete a Waiver Form with the Town of Aurora in order to work in the Arboretum.
Friends of the Arboretum are not expected to be active participants. That doesn't mean they cannot be active, it's their choice. By contributing $50 or more each year, they provide some of the funds needed to manage and expand the Arboretum. Our plans will come to fruition sooner, thanks to the support of the Friends of the Arboretum. 'Friends' status is granted to those organizations or individuals who dedicate Commemorative Trees or Specimen Shrubs and Bushes. The 'Friends' status is in effect until the end of the calendar year following the donation.
All memberships are for a calendar year.
Individuals who become members in the last 2 months of the year
are permitted to renew for the following year at half price.
