Who can join MBS?

Anyone who has an interest in bluebirds.  You don't have to be a bluebird expert or have bluebirds in your yard.

What does it cost to join and what benefits would I receive?

We have different levels of membership for individuals or families:

One (1)  Year Individual or Family Membership:  $20 per year

Student or Teacher Membership $10 per year

Business Membership:  $125 per year - we'll put your business logo and link to your site on our home page. 

Lifetime Membership:  $300 one time - you get an attractive certificate suitable for framing PLUS an MBS embroidered denim shirt. 

A quarterly newsletter is mailed to each member.  It is filled with useful information about bluebirds and other cavity-nesting birds.  MBS also holds several yearly events with featured speakers at no cost to members.  Your membership dues will also help cover the costs of exhibiting at various conservation events throughout the state.  These are opportunities in our state chapter to be involved in educating the general public about bluebirds and other cavity nesters in Michigan.  One of the greatest benefits of membership is that you will be joining a network of people who love bluebirds, and who will be a resource for you in answering all your bluebird questions.
