In purchasing a membership, I/we have read, understand and agree to the membership statement below.

I (we) enter upon the Mohonk Preserve (the Preserve) for recreational activities such as rock climbing, biking, hiking, horseback riding, knowing that these activities can be highly dangerous and may result in serious personal injury or even death. Given the thousands of acres and many miles of trails and carriage roads, I understand that the Preserve and Mohonk Mountain House (“MMH”) do not have the resources to maintain the rocks, cliffs, or other natural features.  I understand that the carriage roads are not specifically maintained for horses, carriages, or bicycle riding and that the trails are for foot traffic only. Bikers and horseback riders must wear helmets at all times when riding. The Preserve and MMH are not responsible for climbing protection on the cliffs. In becoming a member of the Preserve, I assume full responsibility for any injuries or death which might result to me on the Preserve or MMH. I agree to be responsible for my own safety and welfare, and for that of any minors in my charge. I agree to release, defend and indemnify the Preserve and MMH officers, directors, employees, and agents from and against all actions, claims, damages, costs and judgments for injuries or death arising from or relating to my activities or those of minors in my charge on the Preserve’s and MMH’s property. The  Supreme Court of the State of New York in Ulster County shall have exclusive jurisdiction over every party in connection with any lawsuit. I understand that my access to the Preserve may be revoked for failure to obey instructions of Preserve staff or for conduct that is illegal, destructive of Preserve property or otherwise in violation of Preserve rules and policies. I understand that membership from my donation is not the same as membership as defined under the New York State Not For Profit Corporation Law. I understand that the membership benefits are subject to change and that membership cannot be inherited, bequeathed, assigned, or transferred.

All members must reside at the same address.

As a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, we are required to inform you that for federal income tax purposes, your membership contribution is tax deductible less the value of goods and services received.
