Membership

As a new or renewing member of the Center for Coastal Studies, you are making an active contribution to the study and conservation of the Gulf of Maine, home to the great whales of the North Atlantic and the many other fantastic varieties of wildlife for which it serves as a primary habitat. They are defenseless without your support.

In thanks for your support you will receive:

* The Center’s newsletter Coastwatch
* A special CCS member discount of $5 off the regular ticket price for whale-watch trips aboard the Dolphin Fleet. Number of discounted tickets per whale watch depends upon membership level. Please note you must make your reservation by phone (1-800-826-9300) for the discount to apply!
* A 20% discount off all CCS retail merchandise purchases, either made in person here in Provincetown or from our new on-line store (now under construction!)

Regardless of your membership level, if you are a new member, we will send you a premium as a token of our appreciation! See below for details.
