Organizational Memberships

Organizational memberships are available to non-profit and government service agencies for their staff and program participants when they use Roger Tory Peterson Institute (RTPI) programs or facilities in furtherance of their mission. Benefits include free building admission, member discount rates for programs and a 10% discount rate on facility rentals and Gift Shop purchases.

RTPI requests no more than a 1:4 ratio between staff and program participants per visit. Regretfully, we cannot accept appointments from organizational members on Mondays or Tuesdays. Museum hours are Wednesday through Saturday 10:00 am to 4:00 pm and Sundays 1:00 to 5:00 pm.

The cost for an Organizational Membership is $160. Please contact Justyne Preston at 716-665-2473 extension 227 or jpreston@rtpi.org for more information.

Trails are always available, seven days a week, from dawn to dusk, at no charge.
