NEW: Quest optimized for Mobile

You asked for it and we delivered! A sleek new Quest layout is optimized for 10” tablets including the iPad, but also looks great on other tablets and phones! We’ve tested it on a number of devices and think it looks great, but if you have feedback, let our editor know: The mobile version of Quest Vol. 17, No. 1 will be available online for members on Monday, Feb. 29, along with the PDF version of the print layout. We’ll be adding mobile versions of previous issues continuously.

Membership changes

In case you missed it, GUE Membership levels have been updated! We are excited to announce the addition of a new membership - Bronze! Aimed to bridge the gap between Conservation and Silver, this new option offers instant access to one course material download and our exclusive annual member t-shirt. That’s in addition to Conservation level benefits like online access to the entire Quest repository and a 5% discount on all merchandise purchases. If you’re already a Conservation member, don’t miss out on upgrading by the end of the month and getting a full year of Bronze membership for just $72.

GUE Membership is separate from GUE certification. It’s a purchase that supports GUE’s mission of education, conservation, and exploration, and demonstrates that you are a part of that mission. Membership also offers you great benefits such as Quest Magazine, discounts, free registrations, and more!
