Refund Policy and Additional Information

Cancellation policy

Due to the limited capacity of our workshops, we cannot offer refunds once you register.  However, your registration ticket is transferrable should you not be able to attend. If you cannot attend and choose not to transfer your ticket, we will issue a receipt to you for the donation you have made to our organization. 

Friends of Bosque del Apache reserves the right to cancel an activity or substitute qualified presenters when necessary.  If we must cancel a Festival event for any reason, we will issue a full refund of the workshop fee.  Should that unlikely occurrence become necessary, we will notify you in as timely a manner as possible. 

Entrance Fees

Please note that registration for a workshop does not include the daily refuge pass. This will need to be purchased through the refuge and each vehicle will need a daily pass or the equivalent. Paying the entrance fee or purchasing your federal passes at Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge directly benefits the refuge. All proceeds are used to maintain and improve the visitor services program, directly benefiting you - the visitor! 

Use of Name and Likeness

We reserve the right to take photographs or videos during the operation of any workshop or part thereof and to use the resulting photography in whole or in part for promotional purposes, including, but not limited to advertising and publicity both in print and electronic media. By joining a workshop with Friends of Bosque del Apache, participants agree to allow their images to be used in such photography; participants who prefer that their image not be used are asked to identify themselves to their tour leader as their workshop begins. We also reserve the right to use, in all or in part, any written reviews or behind-the-scenes photos you may provide to us in our advertising and publicity both in print and electronic media.
