  • I am aware that all hayrides are dependent upon field and weather conditions. My safety is Delaware Nature Society (DNS)'s key concern along with the impact on the landscape. I understand that DNS cannot safely operate in inclement weather or poor field conditions. While DNS cannot schedule rain dates at the time of reservations, I understand that DNS will do their best to work with me to reschedule my event and that if a reschedule date cannot be arranged, a refund will be issued. DNS appreciates my understanding and acceptance of this policy.
