Online Membership Form. 
A membership can be for a family ($25) or an individual ($20).  We ask for your basic contact and location info, if you’d like to volunteer, and ask you to acknowledge that you understand how an MTA membership allows you to use the Falls Reserve Conservation Area (FRCA).  

Online Waiver Form.  
It’s free.   We ask you about emergency contacts, and you virtually sign to acknowledge the fine print.  The form must be completed for each individual participating in any MTA activity, including volunteering.  Until further notice, each individual must sign the waiver, i.e. one waiver per person.  Thank you 🙂


  • An invitation to participate in all organized MTA hikes. We offer hikes all year!  All are led by trained hike leaders. 
  • Free limited access to Fall Reserve Conservation Area, and discounts to FRCA permits (see below for details)
  • Voting privileges at our Annual General Meeting

Pro Tip!  
As a charitable organization, we’re governed by our By-Laws which state that all memberships end on Dec. 31.  However, if it was purchased in the last 5 months of the year, it’s active for the rest of that year, AND to the end of the following year.  
>>>  Starting a membership in the last 5 months of the year (Aug 1 – Dec 31) means that you will never be without an active membership  🙂


Through your online bank, send an eTransfer for the correct amount to  mta AT (substitute @ for AT)
*When we receive notice of an eTransfer, we don’t receive your physical address, which means we aren’t able to send your membership card. So, please be sure to send us your personal info using the online Membership Form.
