COVID-19 Information


A Message From Woldumar's Director

(updated 4/29/2020)

In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, we encourage visitors to enjoy the trails while observing general best practices for social distancing, as well as the following additional precautions:

> To limit crowding on the trails we are asking visitors to use only every other parking spot.  If there is no available parking using this method, please come back at another time.

> Picnic areas and restrooms are closed.

> Please pack out your own trash - there is one receptacle for pet waste.

> When you are on the trails, maintain 6 feet between yourself and other hikers.  Maintain awareness of your surroundings and make way for hikers who are traveling faster than you.  In some areas, you may need to step off the trail.


Our buildings (including restrooms) are closed and all programs and events are cancelled through at least May 15, 2020.  Staff will continue receiving your phone calls and emails, and will respond as quickly as we can.


Summer camp:  Safety is and always has been our top priority, and we are working to develop new hygiene and sanitation protocols, and developing modified programming.  We're confident that we can provide a safe, positive, fun and educational experience this summer! Learn more.


Weddings and Rentals:  If you have a facility rental scheduled in the next 60 days, we have attempted to contact you by phone and/or email.  If you have not heard from us, please contact Hospitality Manager Victoria Churchill-Barner with any questions (rentals@woldumar.org).


If you are a vendor, guest, or anyone other than the contracted Lessee, we ask you to please communicate through the Lessee.  This will help us keep organized and streamline our work to meet everybody's needs.

 

COVID-19 Rental Cancellation Policy:


1) If your event has been cancelled due to a stay-at-home order or a subsequent order that substantially limits the size or conditions of public gatherings, we will work with you to reschedule your date or refund your deposit and all payments if rescheduling is not possible.

2) If your event takes place within the next 60 days and no order has yet been issued substantially limiting the size or conditions of public gatherings, we encourage you to keep your original date.  We will work with you to pencil in a backup date OR reschedule at no extra charge, or refund your deposit and all payments if rescheduling is not possible.

3) If your event takes place within the next 90 days and no order has yet been issued substantially limiting the size or conditions of public gatherings, we encourage you to keep your original date.  We will work with you to pencil in a backup date at no extra charge, but will plan to honor your original contract if it is deemed legal and safe to do so.  If you choose to cancel your original date, our regular cancellation policy will apply.  Please review your contract for details.

4) If you choose to cancel an event more than 90 days in advance, our regular cancellation policy will apply.  Please review your contract for details.


As we have been reminded now countless times, this is an evolving situation and it is very difficult to predict when recommendations and restrictions might change. The leadership at Woldumar is committed to following the advice of health officials to protect our community.

 

We look forward to hosting events, community programs, field study, and camps as soon as it is safe and practical to do so, and will communicate any additional scheduling changes as more information becomes available.


Woldumar is more than a park – it’s a cause and a community.  We appreciate your patience, understanding and continued support, as we do everything we can to support our community in these challenging times.

Native Plant Sale

June 06, 2020
Native Plant Sale

The best way to support native wildlife is with native grasses and wildflowers!

Woldumar is the host site for Eaton County Conservation District's annual plant sale again this year.

No place to plant natives where you live? No worries! You can "Adopt a Plant" or a few with the help of a Woldumar staff member and you can help Woldumar's native habitat!

This year, we will also be offering a "Make and Take" Native Bee House Kit. The kits will cost $10 and a Woldumar staff member will help you build the bee house on-site so you can take it home with you. This will be offered from 12 PM to 2 PM only. We will not be accepting pre-orders for these, the "Make and Take" bee houses will only be available the day of the sale and on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Stay tuned for an updated Native Plant Sale order form!
