Frequently Asked Questions for In-Person Classes

Where will my class be held? Classes are held at venues throughout the Seattle area. Be sure to read through the class description either on the Seattle Audubon website or on the registration portal to see where your class will be held.

How does member pricing work? If you are a current Seattle Audubon member, you receive 20% off each class registration. Select the Seattle Audubon Member ticket option to receive your discount. Unsure if your Seattle Audubon membership is current? Email the Member Service Associate or call 206-523-8243 x106.

What is the refund policy if I need to withdraw from a class? Full refunds will be given if you cancel at least two weeks prior to the start of class. No refund will be given if you cancel with less than two weeks’ notice.

Can a class fee be prorated if I only want to attend a portion of it? No. Each class is offered as a package unless there are distinct options to choose from.

Can I purchase a class as a gift for someone else? Yes! Classes make great gifts. Simply enter the recipient’s name, rather than your own, in the registration portal.

What is expected of class participants? All class participants are expected to behave in accordance to the Seattle Audubon Code of Conduct.

Is the class fee tax deductible? No. Class fees pay for a service (the class) and are not a donation to Seattle Audubon. This means that no part of any class registration fee is tax deductible.

Where can I get additional information? If you need additional information, or have class topic suggestions, or are willing to teach a class, please contact the Education Manager or call (206) 523-8243 ext. 107.
