VOLUNTEER INFORMATION FORM AND SIGNUP
Thank you for your interest in joining New Hampshire Volunteers for Nature
, The Nature Conservancy's core team of volunteers that support the stewardship and maintenance of the lands in our care here in the Granite State. By providing your information and interests below, we can better communicate with you about upcoming volunteer opportunities and work together with you to assist in keeping our state's lands and waters happy and healthy!
First things first...
We need you to sign a liability release! After reading the release, you'll be asked to consent. Please do so before continuing! And now, the fine print:
I have volunteered to assist The Nature Conservancy, a nonprofit corporation organized and existing under the laws of the District of Columbia (the "Conservancy").
I have volunteered my time and services because of my support for the Conservancy and my desire to participate actively in the furtherance of its work. I understand that my activities as a volunteer entail a risk of physical injury or death and that I may be exposed to hazards arising from vehicular travel over both improved and primitive roads, use of tools and equipment, and strenuous manual labor. I further understand that accidents or injuries may occur in locations or under circumstances where medical attention is not readily available. I expressly assume all risks associated with or arising from my volunteer activities. Because the assertion of claims against the Conservancy for personal injury occurring during my volunteer service would be antithetical to my support of the Conservancy and its goals and would reduce the ability of the Conservancy to accomplish its charitable purposes, I grant this release.
I agree to abide by all rules and regulations of The Nature Conservancy regarding safety and use of all equipment. On behalf of myself, my estate and the personal representative thereof, my heirs and assigns, I hereby forever release The Nature Conservancy, its officers, directors, employees and agents, from any and all costs, claims, losses, liabilities or damages arising from or in any way related to, my service as a volunteer. I intend this release to be effective, regardless of whether the claim of liability is asserted in negligence, strict liability in tort, or other theory of recovery. For myself, my estate and the personal representative thereof, my heirs and assigns, I covenant and agree to make no claim, nor to institute any suit, action or proceeding against the Conservancy, its officers, directors, employees and agents, relating to any accident, incident or occurrence arising out of, or in connection with, my volunteer activities.
I grant the Conservancy permission to take photographs and video recordings of me and any minor children accompanying me and to display, publish or otherwise use any photographs, video recording, or any other media associated with the stewardship activities, including any media which contains my image or likeness, for the Conservancy’s purposes. I also consent to the use of my name in connection with such images. I release, indemnify and hold harmless the Conservancy and its officers, directors, agents and employees from any and all claims which may result at any time by reason of the use of my image and name, including, without limitation, claims of privacy. My heirs, executors, administrators and assigns shall be bound by this consent and release.
