Woodbine Ecology Center's cancellation/credit and transfer policies are based on our investment in staff, planning, as well as food and equipment purchases before each course. We cannot recover our expenses if you cancel. Short-notice cancellations often prevent others from attending. We rarely cancel a class due to weather so plan accordingly.
We cannot hold a space for a program until we have received your deposit. Deposits are non-refundable. Deposit amounts are as follows:
$25 deposit for programs that are less than $100
For programs over $100 deposit is 25% of the price
Full payment for all programs is required 15 days before start date. If you have made a deposit for a program and we do not receive the balance due 15 days prior to the start date, we reserve the right to give your place to someone else. Registration within 15 days of the start date requires payment in full at registration time.
If you cancel or leave a program for any reason:
1. 15 or more days prior to the program start date; you are entitled to a full refund, minus the deposit.
2. Between 8 and 14 days prior to the course start date, Woodbine Ecology Center will retain 50 percent of the course tuition.
3. Fewer than 8 days prior to the course start date and once the course has begun, there will be no refunds.
We reserve the right to cancel a program or change its duration, tuition or location. Woodbine Ecology Center is not responsible for costs associated in these cases. We recommend that you consider refundable airplane tickets for travel. If a program is cancelled by us you will receive a full refund, including deposit.
A limited number of work trade positions are available for our residential programs. We award these positions to program participants based on demonstrated financial need. All worktrade hours must be completed prior or during the actual program. If you would like to be considered for a work trade position, check the "Work Trade" box on your registration form. Please submit your registration form along with your course deposit and complete our online worktrade application form. If you don't want to use our online form please include with your registration form a brief letter describing your financial and work situation, stating if you are a registered volunteer with us, how many hours you would be able to do, any special skills you have, and if you would be able to do any of your hours prior to the program. Please note that the larger worktrade positions require a significant number of hours worked prior to the program in order to ensure successful participation in the program.
You will receive a confirmation letter, map to our facility, and workshop information prior to your arrival.
We require that you complete, sign, and mail in our Medical and Liability Waiver form prior to participation in all programs. Because of the ever-changing nature of medical and other requested information. Some programs may require additional forms. See our Forms Page for required forms.
Woodbine Ecology Center programs take place in a rural, mountainous, outdoor, and rugged environment with variable conditions. Most programs require at least a basic level of fitness and mobility. We will do our best to accomodate anyone with special needs within the limitations of the nature of our programs and of the facility as long as we have advance notice.
We seek to provide a fun and stimulating learning environment that respects everyone, including all living beings and the land. We expect that all visitors and participants will actively contribute to that environment. In order to create a safe and welcoming place for everyone we don't allow alcohol, drugs or weapons during any of our events and workshops.
Please see our Visiting page for more information.
