Important Information regarding Programs during COVID-19
Thank you for your interest in our program! During this prolonged period of pandemic and isolation, our work of connecting people and nature has never felt more essential!
We are planning to move forward with our field programs in 2021, as we keep a close watch on trends and best practices. Given the uncertainties right now, we are holding off on the specific details we normally include in a welcome letter, i.e. arrival time and procedures, etc.
We feel very good about the safety procedures we put in place during fall 2020 and will likely keep them the same for our 2021 programs. But we also know that things will change during the year, so we are asking you to check back at this website for more specific information as we get closer to the date of your program.
If you have any questions or concerns between now and then, please feel free to get in touch by email or phone: [email protected] or 865-448-9732 ext. 18.
