SEASON PASSES TO DEER CREEK HILLS OAK WOODLAND PRESERVE AND WORKING RANCH AND TO CAMP POLLOCK, DOWNTOWN SACRAMENTO
Season Passes are available for purchase at any time and are good for a full 12 months.
Yes! Season Passes make great gifts for friends and family who enjoy the outdoors.
Season Passes cost $50 each and do 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 recommended registration fees are $10 per docent-led event at Deer Creek Hills and Camp Pollock. Outings covered by season passes include educational-themed hikes (birding, botany, pollinators, geology, history, and natural history), kayaking/canoeing, mountain biking, equestrian rides, star gazing, trail runs, yoga, and summer concerts. Season Passes do not cover special ticketed fundraising events like mountain bike demo day, Glampout, and Treasures of the Valley.
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. Remember to pre-register both the season pass holder and child ahead of time, as many outings have participant caps.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
If you plan to bring children of which you are not a legal guardian, please be sure that a parent/guardian of each minor signs a Minor Release of Liability beforehand. If you are bringing your own children, there is a space on your Adult Release of Liability where you can list the kids’ names. Every visitor must sign a liability waiver every time they attend an event on one of our properties.
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 Treasures of the Valley (TOV) are not covered by your Season Pass. Please check the website calendar for a full listing of all scheduled events/outings and register for any you would like to attend.
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.
Yes, but each guest is required to pre-register and pay any associated fees for the event. Larger groups will need to be coordinated with our Outreach Coordinator at 916-612-3719 or email@example.com.
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 also sign up for Enews announcements to receive email updates (approximately twice per month) on upcoming activities and events.
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, weddings, etc. so that at times there may be larger groups of people on the premises and the deck and courtyard may be unavailable for picnicking. Public access, however, is almost always still allowed in the parking lot, lawn, and river access. Days that the entire Camp Pollock property is closed to the public (flooding or special private events) will be posted on our calendar , and rarely exceed 5 days per year.
