NatureConnect NW Participant Agreement Release and Waiver of Liability
I agree to be fully responsible for myself, my health, wellbeing and safety during all NatureConnect NW event or programs for which I register.
I agree to follow any safety instructions given, to remain on trails as indicated or posted, and to remain with the group as requested. I will not leave the location, or go on my own for any reason without first notifying the event leader my intention to do so.
I agree to hold harmless NatureConnect NW, its Board of Directors, heirs and assigns, in the unlikely event of injury, accident or loss, including travel to and from the event location. I understand that my participation is on a purely voluntary basis. I understand that participating with NCNW could result in injuries, even social and economic losses.
I am familiar with the potential risks involved and assume all such risk.
I acknowledge that I am solely responsible for any and all medical expenses that are not covered or paid for by my medical insurer. I further agree that I am solely responsible for payment of all costs resulting from rendering medical aid and ambulance service to me and I authorize that all necessary first aid steps may be taken as prescribed by qualified personnel.
I agree not to bring or use alcohol or any other substance, including prescription drugs or over the counter medications, without first informing the event leader of my intention. I agree not to use any drug, legal or illegal, which might impair my decision-making ability and thus place myself or others at any safety risk. I agree not to bring or use weapons or firearms at any event or program I attend.
I further agree to indemnify, defend, and hold NCNW harmless from any injury, loss or liability whatsoever including reasonable attorneys' fees and/or any other associated costs, caused by, resulting from or related to my participation in the Program, including my intentional or negligent acts or omissions committed prior to, during, or after participation in any event or program.
I sign this Release and Waiver of Liability voluntarily, and in consideration of being permitted to participate with NatureConnect NW.
