I represent that I am in good physical health and capable of participating in the Environmental Volunteer Days (“Volunteer Day(s)”) that I choose to attend hosted by the Hawaiian Islands Land Trust (HILT). I understand that during my participation in a Volunteer Day, I may be exposed to a variety of hazards and risks, foreseen or unforeseen, which are inherent in each Volunteer Day and cannot be eliminated without changing the unique character of the Volunteer Day. These inherent risks include, but are not limited to, the dangers of serious personal injury, property damage, and death (“Injuries and Damages”) from exposure to the hazards of outdoor activities and travel to and from the Volunteer Day site. Hawaiian Islands Land Trust has not tried to contradict or minimize my understanding of these risks. I know that Injuries and Damages can occur by natural causes or activities of other persons, animals, trip members, trip leaders and assistants or third parties, either as a result of negligence or because of other reasons. I understand that risks of such Injuries and Damages are involved in environmental clean ups, such as the Volunteer Days, and I appreciate that I may have to exercise extra care for myself and for others around me in the face of such hazards. I further understand that on any particular Volunteer Day there may not be rescue or medical facilities or expertise necessary to deal with the Injuries and Damages to which I may be exposed. I acknowledge that the enjoyment and excitement of Volunteer Days is derived in part from the inherent risks in outdoor activity and these risks contribute to the enjoyment and are a reason for my participation. The Hawaiian Islands Land Trust, its organizer, participating landowners assistant organizers and volunteer participants take no responsibility for me and will not be held responsible for any injuries or accidents that may occur during Volunteer Days.
In consideration for my acceptance as a participant of these Volunteer Days, and the services and amenities to be provided by HILT in connection with these Volunteer Days, I confirm my understanding that:
