April gardening workshops have been canceled. Visitor health and safety is our number one priority in everything we do at the Utility Exploration Center. Following guidance from the Placer County Health Department regarding the COVID-19 virus, we will be canceling all workshops through the end of April. We are taking steps to refund registered participants' workshop fees. Depending on your payment method, this process may take up to eight weeks. No need for you to initiate the refund. We will contact you if we need any information from you to complete the process. In the meantime, we are working with the instructor to gather helpful resources and handouts from the workshop and will be happy to email them to you in the near future. Please watch for those emails. Thank you for your understanding and patience as we navigate through this time.
