Acknowledgement of Risk, Release of Liability, and Video/Photo Consent

I ("Group Coordinator") affirm that volunteer attendees I coordinate ("Group Members") are freely and willingly participating in the volunteer programming and activities offered by the Arboretum at The Pennsylvania State University (“Program”).

In consideration of our participation in the Program, I agree, on behalf of myself and my executors, heirs, assigns, and any other person claiming by, under, or through me, as follows:

1. I (Group Coordinator) am 18 years of age (or older). I understand that if my group includes members under the age of 18 and I am not their legal parent or guardian, I must follow the requirements of the Penn State memorandum on minor involvement (which will be provided via e-mail following the completion of this application). Group members must be 12 years of age or older to be eligible to volunteer.


2. Group Members understand and acknowledge that participating in the Program activities involves certain risks (some of which they may not fully appreciate) and that injuries, death, property damage or other harm could occur to me or others. Group Members recognize that they have the option to not participate in these activities instead of encountering these inherent risks. They knowingly and voluntarily accept, incur and assume all risks of any injuries, damages, or harm which arise during or result from our participation in the Program, even if arising from the negligence of the program or others.

3. Group Members consent to The Pennsylvania State University (“Penn State”), its trustees, affiliates, officers, employees, agents (collectively, “Penn State Representatives”), to photograph, video record, or audio record them engaging in activities at the Program (the “Materials”). Without expectation of compensation or other remuneration, now or in the future, Group Members hereby grant Penn State, the irrevocable right and license to use, reproduce, adapt, modify, distribute, display or otherwise exploit the Materials for promotional or educational purposes.

4. Group Members hereby release and forever discharge Penn State, Penn State Representatives and their insurers of any responsibility or liability of any nature to them for any personal injuries, death, property damage, other harm that they may suffer or incur either directly or indirectly as a result of their participation in the Program or use of the Materials.
