Please note that since this event serves as a fundraiser for the International Owl Center, all payments are non-refundable unless we cancel an event, if we are able to fill your space in a sold out event, or if there are extenuating circumstances. If you are unable to attend an event that you have registered for and you do not receive a refund, you may consider your registration fee a tax-deductible contribution to the International Owl Center.
