butterfly North American Butterfly Association Membership and Magazines

Does anyone here have a membership in the North American Butterfly Association? I've been considering joining to receive their two membership magazines:

Butterfly Gardener
Butterfly Gardener

American Butterflies
American Butterflies Magazine

Do you enjoy the magazines? Are they informative?
