Cancellations – The following is Fort Ross Conservancy’s program cancellation policy.

  • Programs may be cancelled for 48 hours after booking. After 48 hours, a $100 cancellation fee will be billed to your organization.
  • If either Fort Ross Conservancy or California State Parks choose to cancel a program due to unsafe conditions (weather, road conditions, or operational issues), your program will be transferred, free of charge, to a later date. 
  • If the applicant school must request to reschedule a program date, Please do so by emailing Operations Manager, Sarah thompson SaraT@fortross.org .

Please make checks payable to FRC-ELP.  We also accept credit card payments.

Financial assistance Available! Public lands and outdoor learning experiences should be available to all, irrespective of the cost, and FRC aims to minimize the financial challenges that keep kids from taking important field trips. Thanks to the generous support from our donors we have created the Fort Ross Education Fund to offer program fee waivers and/or transportation subsidies to schools that would otherwise be unable to participate. We welcome teachers of all schools to apply!
