Trying to pay your dues but never got an email? We switched to the Meetup membership platform about a year ago, and we have noticed problems with receiving renewal notices. If you are unable to sign on to trips and think your dues are due go to: https://www.meetup.com/wildnetga/pay_dues

Membership is open to gay and bisexual men age 18 and older.

All skill levels are welcome. We offer day and overnight trips throughout the southeast and occasional national and international offerings. Local trips in metro Atlanta are routinely offered. Sample trips include day hikes, rock climbing, hiking, biking, canoeing, parachuting, hot air balloon rides, caving, and museum visits. Choose from trips posted on our calendar or better, volunteer to lead a trip of your choosing. Annual membership dues are $20. WNG is a great way to meet new guys, enjoy the outdoors and make lasting friendships. Join us!

Joining our group is a two step process. One step is to send us a request to join the group by clicking on the ‘Join Us’ button right there under this description. Be sure to answer the screening questions asked and to agree to the liability waiver. We will then send you a link for payment. After receiving your dues we will then approve you.

Unfortunately MeetUp.com does not manage the payment process and therefore MeetUp.com will not automatically approve your request to join once you've made the PayPal payment. The volunteer leadership team here at WNG has to handle this process manually. This process is managed by volunteers, so while we try to process most applications within 72 hours, sometimes it may take up to a week.

We do not offer trial memberships, however we do have a 90 day refund offer for first-time members.

When joining WNG it is preferable for you to include both your first and last names with your profile, but we acknowledge the fact that some members wish to keep their privacy. For that reason we are requiring you to include, at a minimum, your real first name and the first initial of your last name in your profile name.
