Maintain Social Distance: In consideration of others, please be aware of your surroundings and extend the distance between yourself and others not in your group whenever possible.

What to wear:  This event is outside; please dress for the weather. Additionally, the ground is uneven—sensible shoes are a must. Sneakers or boots are recommended. Open-toed shoes and high heels are prohibited. 

Restrooms & concessions: The rawness of the site is certainly part of its charm. However, that rawness also limits the creature comforts many of us are accustomed to, like running water. Portable bathrooms, hand washing stations, and hand sanitizer are available. Food amenities are not available (with some exceptions, such as food trucks at festivals).

Photography: Photography is permitted. For safety reasons, videography and drones are prohibited.

Accessibility: Handicapped parking is available, but the grounds are not wheelchair accessible. Contact for more info on the mobility of the site and assisted travel options.

Liability: By purchasing admission tickets, all visitors consent to the terms of our liability waiver and consent to be photographed (PDF).

Admission: Site access is limited to guided tours, workshops, and events. Unless otherwise noted, all admissions are ticketed.

Duration: The program is two hours, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.
