Membership Level Dues Amount

Members receive free issues of The Kentucky Warbler at the time of publication. When you join or renew, you choose how your free copies will be delivered. You can receive your copies as full-color PDF files delivered via email, or as printed paper copies delivered via US mail.

Please keep in mind that delivering paper copies costs KOS more than sending copies by email. If you'd like to help offset these costs, please consider adding a donation below to Area of Greatest Need, the Gordon Wilson Fund, or both.
