A great way to show that you support the mission of the Lake Pontchartrain Basin Foundation is to give a gift membership to others!
When you give a gift membership, your friend or family member will be welcomed into the Pontchartrain Conservancy's family of individuals dedicated to our lake and coast. We will send a special letter to each of your recipients to let them know of your generosity. Be sure to list your recipient's contact information (including their name, mailing address, and email) so we can send membership benefits.
Your recipient will enjoy exclusive perks and free admission to the New Canal Lighthouse Museum and Education Center. This gift membership also allows discounts at special events throughout the year, so they'll be able to join in on all the family fun! For a full list of membership benefits, please see below.
Most importantly, membership is a gift that helps the Pontchartrain Conscervancy ensure that:
- The Pontchartrain Basin remains swimmable and fishable through our Water Quality Monitoring Program
- Our wetlands are protected and restored through our habitat program
- Our coast and our communities become sustainable through the science provided by our Coastal Sustainability Program
- Legislative victories that benefit our coast and waterways continue
- Thousands of people each year are informed of issues concerning our lake and our coast through our Education and Outreach Program
- The New Canal Lighthouse Museum and Education Center remains open to the public for tours, field trips, and other educational endeavors
- And more!
Pontchartrain Conservancy and its members have been working tirelessly to restore and protect our Basin for over 30 years. The work to sustain the Pontchartrain Basin is ongoing, and the support of our members is critical. Show your love for our lake and coast by becoming giving a membership as a gift today.
