Conservation Club

Join the Club!

The Conservation Club that is!  JDCF members from all walks of life are passionate about the land they love.  Some have trekked that extra mile to translate that passion into a very generous gift of $1,000.00 and above to the Foundation in a single year.  These larger gifts not only help to protect critical lands for future generations, they also provide nature-related education to our youth and local communities, connecting people of all ages to the precious naturaland cultural resources found in our county.  To recognize these individuals, JDCF has created the Conservation Club.  Members of the club will enjoy the following rewards:

His and/or her fleece jacket(s) highlighting participation in the Conservation Club with a special JDCF logo. If you are one of our many horse enthusiast members, you have the option of a monogrammed saddle pad.




Invitation to a special event centered around our education theme of the year.

Recognition of your status in our quarterly newsletter and in our annual report.

The opportunity to tell your story in our newsletter, Land Matters.
