CANCELLATION POLICY: As a small organization with limited office staff, it is challenging for us to handle last-minute cancellations. If you need to cancel, we will refund your registration fee if :

(1) You withdraw more than two weeks before the start of the class, AND
(2) We can fill your spot with someone from the class waiting list.

Please note that there will be a $5 cancellation fee to cover the credit card transaction costs for your sign-up and cancellation. 

Note about Covid-19 Restrictions: Most but not all of our classes include in-person field trip components. We will follow county and state health guidelines on our trips. If you sign up for a class with a field trip, you will be required to sign a liability waiver.
