FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS FOR SEASON PASSES
TO DEER CREEK HILLS OAK WOODLAND PRESERVE AND WORKING RANCH AND TO CAMP POLLOCK, DOWNTOWN SACRAMENTO
When are Season Passes available?
Season Passes are available for purchase at any time and are good for the current calendar year. To maximize the use of your Season Pass, purchase it earlier in the year. Next year's Season Passes will be available in October.
Can I give a Season Pass as a gift?
By all means, Season Passes make great gifts for friends and family who enjoy the outdoors.
How much does a Season Pass cost and are there any additional fees?
Season Pass costs $50 and does not require any other fees to be paid by the individual pass holder. This is an exceptionally good value if you plan to participate in more than one type of outing, since registration is $10 per docent led events at Deer Creek Hills or Camp Pollock. Outings may be birding, hiking, kayaking/canoeing, mountain biking, equestrian, bat and star gazing hikes depending on the time of year. Mt. Bike Demo Days, GlampOut, and TOV are not covered by Season Passes.
Is the Season Pass good for more than one person, i.e., family members?
Each Season Pass is good for one adult, ONLY. However, children ages 15 and younger are always free and can accompany an adult season pass holder on outings/events.
How many children can one adult season pass holder bring to an outing/event?
We try to keep the ratio of 1 adult to every 4 children. If your group may be larger than that, we recommend contacting our Outreach Coordinator, at 916-612-3719 or email@example.com about the size of the group and they can either help arrange for additional docents as needed or will discuss if a special day could be arranged for your group instead.
What outings/events would the Season Pass cover?
The Season Pass is good for all outings being offered at Deer Creek Hills and/or Camp Pollock with the following exceptions: Mountain Bike Demo Days, GlampOut and TOV are not covered by your Season Pass. Please check the website calendar for a full listing of all scheduled events/outings.
Are Season Pass holders required to register for outings/events?
Yes, because events have limited capacity, even as a Season Pass holder you should register and reserve a spot for each outing/event you wish to attend.
As a Season Pass holder, can I bring guests or a group to an outing?
Yes, but each guest is required to be pre-registered and pay for the event. Larger groups will need to be coordinated with our Outreach Coordinator at 916-612-3719 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
With a Season Pass, can I lead a hiking , equestrian or mountain biking trip myself?
No, but if you would like to become a docent, you could then help lead a group outing on the property. For information on becoming a docent, we encourage interested individuals to contact our Outreach Coordinator at 916-612-3719 or email@example.com.
Can I access the Deer Creek Hills Preserve with my Season Pass at any time?
Access is currently limited to only when we have docents or staff present on the property with scheduled events. Updated calendar information can always be found on our website to verify days and hours when the property is open for use. You can sign up for Enews announcements of upcoming events by typing in your email to the "subscribe" box at www.sacramentovalleyconservancy.org on our home page.
Can I access Camp Pollock with my Season Pass at any time?
Camp Pollock is open to the general public (no Season Pass needed) from dawn to dusk seven days a week. Only some of the docent led activities that we plan to offer will require your Season Pass (please check the calendar for updates to this information). Please note that Camp Pollock is often rented for parties, meetings, etc. so that at times there may be larger groups of people on the premises. Public access, however, is still allowed.
