'in the field' workshop information

My workshops are very relaxed and open format. There are some things you should know before going out on one of them:

- Transportation is not provided. Please arrange your own transportation.

- A friend or spouse is welcome to join at no added cost.*

- In the event that a workshop is cancelled due to severe weather, an illness, or any other unforeseeable event, the option to reschedule to a later date will be given.

- Workshops will still operate rain or shine.

- You've booked, but want to change the date? No problem, I can do that depending on availability.

* I encourage you to bring your spouse or a friend to enjoy getting outside, and they can even bring their camera along to take photos; however, the instruction will be focused on the main clients. If you both wish to experience the full benefits of the workshop, I recommend that you each purchase a spot.
