I have dietary concerns; how do I let someone know?

I didn’t register for a Field Trip in time but I would like to go on one. How can I go?

Sometimes we have individuals who sign up for a Field Trip but then cannot go due to travel plans, etc. If you wish to “stand-by” for a Field Trip, you should arrive to the designed departure spot 15 minutes prior to the departure time and we will add your name to a list at that time. If there are “no-shows” for the visit, as many on-site stand-by individuals will be accommodated as possible.
