Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Policy
The Potomac Valley Audubon Society (PVAS) does not exclude, deny benefits to, or otherwise discriminate against any service recipient, applicant, program staff, or the public on the basis of race, color, religion, national or ethnic origin, disability, age, sex, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, political affiliation, or veteran status.
For full cancellation requests by registrants made more than one week prior to a program, participants will receive a refund for half the cost of the program(s) being cancelled. Cancellations made less than a week prior to a program will receive no refunds. We will issue a full refund for cancellations made due COVID-19 or other illness.
PVAS will cancel a program if:
West Virginia Governor issues a Stay at Home Order or an order restricting group size;
hazardous weather that would create unsafe road conditions or unsafe conditions for being outside is forecasted;
a staff member critical to conducting an event is diagnosed with an active case of COVID-19;
- the session doesn’t meet PVAS's registration number minimum.
Registrants will be notified by email of any cancelations by 5:00 p.m. the evening before the program.
If PVAS cancels a program, you will receive a full refund.
*We understand that last minute cancellations might need to happen, but please try to let us know as soon as possible, so that depending on the circumstance, we can open the spot to someone else.
