A Message From Woldumar's Director

(updated 7/7/2020)

In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, we encourage visitors to enjoy the trails while observing general best practices for social distancing, as well as the following additional precautions:


> Public restrooms are available when staff is on site, generally 9am-5pm Monday through Friday.  Members can access restrooms at any time using their PIN.


> Picnic tables are available at behind the Visitor Center and at the Sunrise Pavilion.  For the health and safety of our campers, the picnic area attached to the barn is NOT available for public use at any time.


> Please pack out your own trash.  There is one receptacle for pet waste.


> When you are on the trails, maintain 6 feet between yourself and other hikers.  Maintain awareness of your surroundings and make way for hikers who are traveling faster than you.  In some areas, you may need to step off the trail.


Our buildings are closed to the public.  Staff will continue receiving your phone calls and emails, and will respond as quickly as we can.


Summer camp:  Please see our camp page for updates.


Weddings and Rentals: If you have an existing reservation or would like to reserve the grounds or facilities, please contact Hospitality Manager Victoria Churchill-Barner (rentals@woldumar.org).


If you are a vendor, guest, or anyone other than the contracted Lessee, we ask you to please communicate through the Lessee.  This will help us keep organized and streamline our work to meet everybody's needs.

 

COVID-19 Rental Cancellation Policy:


1) If your event has been cancelled due to a stay-at-home order or a subsequent order that substantially limits the size or conditions of public gatherings, we will work with you to reschedule your date or refund your deposit and all payments if rescheduling is not possible.

2) If your event takes place within the next 60 days and no order has yet been issued substantially limiting the size or conditions of public gatherings, we encourage you to keep your original date.  We will work with you to pencil in a backup date OR reschedule at no extra charge, or refund your deposit and all payments if rescheduling is not possible.

3) If your event takes place within the next 90 days and no order has yet been issued substantially limiting the size or conditions of public gatherings, we encourage you to keep your original date.  We will work with you to pencil in a backup date at no extra charge, but will plan to honor your original contract if it is deemed legal and safe to do so.  If you choose to cancel your original date, our regular cancellation policy will apply.  Please review your contract for details.

4) If you choose to cancel an event more than 90 days in advance, our regular cancellation policy will apply.  Please review your contract for details.


As we have been reminded now countless times, this is an evolving situation and it is very difficult to predict when recommendations and restrictions might change. The leadership at Woldumar is committed to meeting or exceeding the advice of health officials to protect our community.

 

We look forward to hosting events, community programs, field study, and camps as soon as it is safe and practical to do so, and will communicate any additional scheduling changes as more information becomes available.


Woldumar is more than a park – it’s a cause and a community.  We appreciate your patience, understanding and continued support, as we do everything we can to support our community in these challenging times.
