Bring Your Own Reusable Water Bottle on SAR Field Trips

As part of SAR’s commitment to sustainable resource use and a healthy environment, we will no longer supply disposable water bottles during our field trips. Instead we are asking that field trip participants bring their own refillable water bottles. Additional water will be available to participants for the refilling of their bottles on full-day trips. A selection of sodas will also continue to be available on field trips.

Trip Activity Levels

  • Easy: Limited walking. Participants must be able to get in and out of vans and walk unassisted short distances from parking areas to museums or art studios.
  • Moderate: Participants must be in good health. Activities may require walking on paved or unpaved surfaces with generally firm footing, over distances of up to 2 miles over the course of the day.
  • Strenuous: Participants must be in excellent health, extremely mobile, and accustomed to an active lifestyle. Activities may require hiking off-trail, over uneven ground with elevation changes of 500 feet, and walking the equivalent of up to 5 miles over the course of the day.

Cancellation Policy

To keep our field trips operating smoothly and fairly, SAR implements the following cancellation policy:

If an individual participant cancels, all monies will be refunded up to six weeks prior to the trip date, except for any tickets already purchased, or penalties incurred from the hotel for room cancellation.
 
If, however, the cancellation of this individual brings the trip total to under the minimum number, then a full-refund cannot be made. At six weeks prior, no refunds will be made (except on a case by case basis).

SAR reserves the right to cancel a field trip if registration is too low to make it economically viable or for other reasons, including, but not limited to: weather, safety, forest fires, unavailability of trip leader, etc. In such cases SAR will refund registrants’ fees in full. SAR also reserves the right to make changes to an advertised itinerary as circumstances require.
