Nationwide Annual Membership to Zoo's, Science Centers, etc for $62/4

A friend of mine at work sent me this great email about this awesome deal! This would be especially great for stay at home moms that like to do fieldtrips!

The Western North Carolina Nature Center offers a yearly membership pass for a family of 4 for $62!!  That is one of the cheapest yearly memberships I've seen! But, to make this even sweeter...they've partnered with Science Centers, Aquariums, and Zoo's across the country. That means that you buy this 1 pass which gets you in to tons of great places where ever you're at! Below, is a list of the reciprocal locations you can visit!
This is an unbelievably awesome deal!

Here's what Heather has to say about her experience with the program:
Each of these places offer family memberships and they probably have similar reciprocal agreements that you can look into but I believe that all of the family membership cost at or above $100. But, you can buy this pass for only $62!  This is a grat opportunity for a stay at home mother and that is when I started utilizing this program.  I am now working full time but we still go on family adventures on the weekends and the fact that they are free is awesome.  We are planning a trip to the Science museum in Raleigh at some point (they are also currently on the reciprocal agreement).
