Photo Release:



I,                                                                 will participate in research, training, and/or volunteer activities with members or affiliates of the Puget Sound Bird Observatory (PSBO) at a publicly or privately owned site in Washington State. I certify that I am physically capable, with or without reasonable accommodation, of undertaking these activities. I further certify that I have fully informed PSBO of any medical conditions or medications that could reasonably be expected to affect my ability to participate in the program. In case of medical emergency, I give consent for emergency medical treatment, and I agree to pay or reimburse those paying for any charges incurred for my medical treatment, including evacuation or hospital visits, not covered by my personal health insurance. Furthermore, I agree to follow the directions concerning personal safety and bird safety provided by the PSBO liaison or other PSBO affiliate.

I have carefully read this agreement and agree to its terms and conditions. I acknowledge that voluntary participation in any field trip involves inherent risks and hazards, including but not limited to physical injury and material loss from exposure to hazards such as adverse weather conditions, insects and wildlife, rough and unknown terrain, moderately strenuous exercise, and transport to and from field sites. I acknowledge that all risks cannot be prevented, and assume sole responsibility for risks associated with my participation in any PSBO event.
