Gift Membership

Give the gift of Riverbend membership to a loved one today! A gift membership connects the ones you love to the Riverbend Community. It is a special place of shady walks and rustling leaves, where little toes can feel the cool water of our stream, where the chorus of frogs can be heard in our ponds, and where children can explore our 30 acres of meadows and woodlands searching for a wide assortment of birds, bugs and other critters. Your gift will give them a chance to experience the benefits of our membership with discounts to programs throughout the year and free tickets to Special events.
