Explora is grateful to the many New Mexicans working everyday on the frontlines of the coronavirus epidemic. To show our thanks, we are introducing Frontline Memberships at Explora.  

For every new membership (including gift memberships) or renewal purchased while Explora is closed, we will donate a FREE Family Membership to a frontline service provider. These men and women are making sure our grocery shelves are stocked, our utility services are running, our trash is collected, our mail is delivered, and more. They are New Mexico’s first responders, doctors, nurses, & caretakers, and are doing amazing work in the most challenging of circumstances. 

We give our thanks to these heroes now, and look forward to welcoming them when we re-open.

Please note: While your membership will be activated immediately, once we re-open, your Explora membership will be extended by the length of our closure.
