Leadership Circle members are a distinguished group of individuals who share a passion and deep commitment to the Museum’s mission. As a member of the John Audubon, John Muir, Carl Linnaeus or Charles Darwin Circle, you join a valued group of Museum members whose exceptional commitment benefits the entire Museum.


In recognition of this extraordinary level of dedication, members enjoy special access to programs and events. Leadership Circle members are the first to learn about events such as exhibition premieres and international expeditions.


Members also have the opportunity to meet the curatorial and exhibits staff and learn first-hand about the Museum’s outstanding collections, research and exhibitions through events and tours.
