Covid-19 Extension

Covid-19 Extension

Extending Your Benefits Because of Covid-19

We very much value your support through membership in the Discovery Society and will extend your membership benefits for a period equal to our temporary physical closure due to Covid-19. When you renew your support, your membership will automatically be extended by the number of months you were unable to visit due to our closure. (Renew now)

Examples of how the extension will work:

Please note: If your benefits expired during our temporary closure, when you use your reciprocal benefits at one of our partnering organizations, please be prepared to show the Covid-19 extension chart along with your expired card and ID to the institution you are visiting. If the institution does not accept the chart as proof of your benefits, please contact Laurie Voight at or 941-216-3463 for an updated digital card.

In the event that an institution has suspended their reciprocal program due to the effects of Covid-19 please contact Laurie Voight at or 941-216-3463 so that we may reach out to them and update our reciprocal terms.
