Renewing made easier

We recently invested in a new membership platform to make managing and renewing your NHSN membership easier for you. You can now subscribe to a continuous monthly or annual payment by direct debit or credit/debit card, which will come out automatically when your membership is due for renewal.

We will send you an email inviting you to set up your membership profile ahead of your renewal date. Once you have set up your profile, you will then be able to renew your membership through the new platform. Please check your junk folder if you do not receive the email – the address the email will be sent from is

Please note that renewal is no longer available via the website and it is no longer possible to renew in advance of your personal renewal date.

With your continued support, we can do even more over the years ahead.

Thank you for renewing

Your support makes a world of difference for North East nature. Without it, the research, conservation and education carried out by NHSN volunteers would not be possible. For that, we can’t thank you enough.

For almost 200 years, the passion and support of NHSN members like you has shaped the fortunes of nature in the North East. Imagine what we could achieve together over 200 more?

Your support made an impact this year. During a difficult year, you provided opportunities for people of all ages, inspired wonder and enabled conservation and research across the North East.
