Membership FAQ

Are memberships transferable?

RBNC memberships are not transferable.

What is ANCA?

One of the many benefits of becoming a member of RBNC is being able to take advantage of the ANCA reciprocal membership program. This gives you access to nature centers all over the country which offer free admission or discounts or both! Learn more at https://natctr.org/membership/reciprocal-program.

How many membership cards do I get?

  • One card is issued for the Cottonwood Membership level
  • Two cards are issued for Willow level and above
  • All levels (except the Individual level) are valid for free admission all year long for two named adults, plus children or grandchildren under 17.

Can I let someone else use my card?

Unfortunately, we cannot allow someone else to enter RBNC with your membership.

When should I expect my membership card?

Benefits may be used as soon as we receive your payment. It can take up to 10 business days to receive your membership card and passes.

What is membership automatic rebilling?

Instead of being prompted to manually renew your membership when it expires, your membership will automatically renew at the same membership level after one year. If you do not wish to do this, switch to one-time billing.

Is the membership for a calendar year or from the date of purchase?

Membership starts on the date of purchase and extends to the end of that month the following year.

I lost my card. Can I get a new card?

Yes. Replacement cards can be issued, please contact the office at 940-767-0843.

I have a membership but forgot my card. Can I still receive member admission benefits?

Yes. We can verify your membership without your member card.
