Your membership dues help fund our river stewardship work. Put simply, your dollars go directly to saving rivers all throughout the United States.
You won't “lose” any time on your membership. If you renew early, we'll simply add that amount of time to your current membership.
If you sign up for auto-renewals, we bill your credit card or debit card each year for your chosen membership level. We send you an email a month before we do this, so you don't have any surprises. It is your responsibility to notify us of any changes in your credit/debit card information (new card # and/or new card expiration date).
To cancel your auto-renewal status call us at 1-866-262-8429 or email email@example.com and we'll take care of it no questions asked.
It depends on your membership status:
