    • The limit of participants is set by the trip leader. Exceeding this limit not only makes the leader uncomfortable, it detracts from everyone’s enjoyment.

      Hopefully a cancellation will appear so that you will be able to attend. Otherwise, please check our schedule for other upcoming trips.

  2. Please be aware that the Government Shutdown has left StMarks without services. As long as the shutdown remains we be able able to get into the park but bathrooms will not be open, nor will the Visitors Center. Trams will not be running. Please plan accordingly
