2022 – 2023 Pool REBUILD to REOPEN Capital Campaign
Thank you for all of your support! We finally hit our $50K goal and re-opened the pools with beautiful new plaster and tile for summer, 2023!
Join Our Monthly Sustainer Circle
Our Sustainer Circle helps to sustain and uplift the long-term vision, mission, refurbishment and revitalisation efforts at the Springs. Through ongoing patron contributions, Sustainer Circle members offer a powerfully supportive foundation to buffer and bolster us from the intense ebbs and flows of a (for the time being) still limited revenue-producing season surrounded by months of little to no cashflow (where, usually, the lion’s share of all repairs and revitalization projects must also occur).
More powerfully, our Sustainer Circle enables our year-round work to remain focused on the longer-arc of cultural and ecological restoration, infrastructure upgrades and improvements, a county use/permit update allowing us to create a true hot springs experience, as well as long-term legacy planning to ensure the accessibility and protection of the Springs for generations to come.
How it works: Sustainer Circle members contribute automated monthly donations –OR– a single annual donation. While being a part of our esteemed Sustainer Circle is separate from admissions, many of the extras or perks that were formerly a part of our classic memberships (such as weekend evening swim hours, guest passes, cafe discounts, etc.) are now part of our annual thank you to our Sustainer Circle members. This patronage is on an annual basis and membership is auto-renewed each year with 45-day renewal notice. If there are any critical or unexpected shifts which necessitate a change of support mid-year, Sustainer Circle Members may request a change using our a 30-day courtesy Donation Cancellation/Alteration notice form.

Sustainer Circle Policies
Sustainer Circle members are individuals. Multiple people (like a couple) or groupings of people (friends or families) are not grouped together under a single donating member. Said another way, a couple or a whole family could consider themselves connected to a single Sustainer member or a Patron member, by way of using that member’s guest passes for example, but, for our purposes, we only record one individual’s name and donation information.
Sustainer Circle membership does not convey admissions to the Springs during regular hours, though many of the perks that were a part of our former memberships (such as weekend evening swim hours, guest passes, cafe discounts, etc.) are now part of our annual thank you to our Sustainer Circle members.
All Sustainer Circle member donations primarily fund capital improvements and land-based ecological, restoration and infrastructural improvements which specifically build upon our mission and vision and which help to preserve the future legacy of the Springs.
- Occasionally, these funds may also sustain basic operational costs during lean times if ever needed. In the current chapter of our organizational life, these funds are going directly towards our efforts in rebuilding the pools and reopening again for the summer 2023 season.
- After reopening for our summer 2023 season, funds will next support us to complete our 50+ year master site design and legacy planning which is required for us to apply for a new use permit, then support our movement through the permitting process itself (estimated to be between 3-7 years).
- Finally, once we have a new use permit issued, funds will go towards phased implementation for that legacy plan.
- Lastly, along the way, some smaller portion of funds will likely always be put towards supporting implementation of smaller, concurrent but adjacent ecological or cultural restoration projects, as well as minor infrastructural repairs and improvements.
