Membership Drives & Discounts

One way Fontenelle Forest supports greater access to our trails and Nature Center is by offering corporate membership drives and non-profit memberships. We are also proud to partner with several libraries in the Omaha metro and surrounding areas through the Library Pass Program. Learn more about these options below.



A Fontenelle Forest membership drive can positively contribute to the health and wellbeing of your employees and their families by providing access to nature, hiking trails, programs and more. Fontenelle Forest is the perfect place for your employees to experience the physical and mental health benefits that the outdoors provides, while also supporting the Forest as a community resource.  

Forest staff will work with you to determine the structure and timeline of your membership drive. Our team will provide you with recommendations, ongoing support, tools and resources.
