IslandWood and COVID-19

ISLANDWOOD AND COVID-19

 

March 16, 2020

 

Dear IslandWood Community,

 

To help keep our community and staff safe during the COVID-19 outbreak, IslandWood has made the decision to close all of our education programs, community events, private events, and conferences through the end of April. We will be continuing to run our graduate program via remote classes.

 

Everyone who has purchased a ticket, booked a school program, or booked a private event, meeting or conference through the end of April will have the opportunity to transfer their ticket price or deposit into a donation, or to receive a refund.

 

Our plan is to resume our programming on May 1st. As we continue to assess the situation and factors affecting our region, we will provide you with regular updates.

 

For an organization that was founded to bring people together to connect, to explore, and to work together in community, this is a particularly difficult time for all of us at IslandWood. If you’d like to make a donation, please click here. Your support at this time will make all the difference.

 

Every day at IslandWood, we create experiences that help students and educators understand their environment and discover the impact they can have on the world and their community. While IslandWood programs may be temporarily paused, we will continue to advance this work in creative ways. Over the next week, we will be designing interactive online programming and working with our school partners to hear how we can best help. Thank you for all that you are doing in your own communities to care for each other during this very challenging time.

 

With gratitude,
Megan Karch
CEO
