Heartland events are designed for families to attend together. Students need to be accompanied by an adult chaperone. If your student will be attending with another family, please let the field trip host know. Chaperones must be the legal parent or 25 years and older. All chaperones must be healthy, ethical people with the skills to be responsible adult chaperones.

**To ensure the health and safety of all attendees, please do not attend a field trip or event if you, your student(s), or anyone in your household is ill or showing possible signs of illness.**

Please read our refund policy!

Refunds will not be given for any reason. As a courtesy, if you are sick or unable to attend a field trip, please contact the teacher, who planned the event to let them know so they do not wait at the venue for you.* Families who are no-shows may lose access to future field trips.*

May I pay using my student's planning amount? Yes! You can pay for your student's ticket and one chaperone ticket with your student's planning amount. There are two steps to purchase tickets for field trips with your student's planning amount.

Step 1. Reserve your ticket on Ticketbud. Please select the "Student ticket paid with planning amounts through Procurify" and or "Chaperone ticket paid with planning amounts through Procurify" ticket options on Ticketbud. Complete the checkout process on Ticketbud. You will receive an email confirmation from Ticketbud once your order is complete. (If you do not receive an email please check your Spam folder.) This is the first step in reserving your tickets. Immediately after you receive confirmation from Ticketbud, you will move to step 2.

Step 2. Place an order for your tickets in Procurify. Search the name of this field trip in the Procurify catalog and complete your order just like you would for any other order. Your spot on this field trip will not be confirmed until you have placed your order in Procurify. Failure to place an order in Procurify within three days will result in being removed from the attendee list and having your funds manually deducted.

What are the check-in procedures? Check-in by 3:45 NO late arrivals, as the hike must start on time to accommodate the light.

Does this trip have any height, weight, and/or age restrictions? This field trip is aimed at students age 5 and up, but younger children are welcome. Just be ready to hike! Only one chaperone per family is allowed die to limited space. Each person who attends a field trip or event must be registered through Ticketbud.

Is there on-site parking available? Meet Megan/Shay at the first white fence/gate and we will lead you in. Eventually you will follow the dirt road all the way down and park on the big open dirt lot on your left, opposite the barn. Or if gate is open, follow the signs to the back of the property, and park in the large dirt lot on the left.

Can we pack snacks or lunch for this event or field trip? Yes, snacks and water are fine.
