week ahead of class to receive a full refund. Class credit will be issued for cancellations made at

South Coast Botanic Garden Foundation reserves the right to cancel a class. Programs may be
cancelled due to insufficient enrollment. In the event that we have to cancel a class, students will
receive a full refund.


The ticket is a revocable license and only grants entry into the South Coast Botanic Garden
for the specified event. The date and time of the event is subject to change by the South Coast
Botanic Garden Foundation (SCBGF) as a result of weather, actions, or events beyond the
SCBGF's control. No refund will be provided if ticket holder cannot attend. If the event is
cancelled for any reason and unable to be rescheduled, the SCBGF's liability is limited to a
refund of the ticket price. If event is rescheduled, you will be contacted with the new date and
time as soon as possible.

occurring prior to, during or after the event, including the risk of lost, stolen, or damaged
property or personal injury. Ticket holder agrees that the SCBGF and its respective agents

All sales are final. Except as referenced herein, there will be no refund, credit, or exchange of
tickets. Tickets obtained from a source other than the SCBGF may be lost, stolen, counterfeit,
or invalid. Lost, stolen, counterfeit, or invalid tickets may not be honored. The resale of tickets
on Garden property is strictly prohibited; any violation may result in the revocation of tickets. If
your tickets are lost, stolen, damaged, or destroyed, please contact us. Should replacement tickets
be issued, they will take precedence over the original tickets. If you are unable to attend the
event, you may donate your tickets to the SCBGF as a tax-deductible contribution. Please notify
