Cary's Aldo Leopold Society membership

The Cary Institute's Aldo Leopold Society provides vital operating support for many key research and education programs. Without this core group of contributors, many programs, such as our free Friday night public lectures, would not be possible. Donations cover costs not met by grants and endowment, allowing the Cary Institute to launch timely programs, make vital capital improvements, maintain hiking trails, offer public programs and family activities, and attract and retain staff.

For the Aldo Leopold Society, the Institute has created 7 levels of annual giving: President's Circle at $25,000; Director at $10,000; Benefactor at $5,000; Leader at $2,500; Patron at $1,000; Ambassador at $750; and Member at $500. In addition to supporting the work of the Institute, Aldo Leopold Society members receive invitations to special events and unique opportunities to interact with scientists and educators. If you would like more information about the Society, please contact Olivia van Melle Kamp, Director of Development, via phone (845) 677-7600 x 120 or e-mail
