The Fine Print on Cancellations:  Refunds for events require 3 business days advance cancellation. Participants who cancel one full business day in advance will receive a credit for a future program within the calendar year. Participants who cancel with less than a full business day’s notice will lose their fee, unless the cause is something we can all agree is an emergency. While unlikely, Field program facilitators, dates, and locations are subject to change. Thank you!
