The undersigned (student, employee, researcher, parent, invitee, or etc.) understands that the Seattle Pacific University Blakely Island Field Station (BIFS) is located on a remote island in the San Juan Islands.  As such, the facilities are primitive, the surrounding terrain and waters are dangerous, and immediate medical attention is not available. I understand the above and hereby assume the risks occasioned by my (my child’s) use of BIFS facilities and participation in BIFS programs, including any and all injuries to person or property.

In consideration of the agreement by BIFS to let me (or my child) use BIFS facilities and participate in BIFS programs, I hereby release, on behalf of myself, my child, and our heirs, successors, and assigns, Seattle Pacific University and Blakely Island Field Station, as well as its officers, agents, and employees, from any claim, liability, or demand whatsoever, including without limitation, bodily injury, personal injury, sickness, disease, death, property loss or damage, or any other loss or damage of any kind, which may arise out of or in any manner be connected with my (my child’s) use of BIFS facilities or participation in BIFS programs, whether resulting from negligence or from some other cause.

This statement and agreement shall not relieve BIFS of its reasonable obligation to avoid wanton or willful acts which may lead to damage or injury; however, it represents a complete waiver of any and all warranties regarding the content and safety of BIFS facilities and programs.
