Occupancy policies

All undergraduate students must be accompanied by one or more responsible faculty members in residence at WBS. Individual faculty researchers and graduate students from accredited institutions of higher education may be accommodated on a space available basis.

Because WBS is a shared facility, all occupants must observe quiet hours between 10:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. You may be sharing the facilities with researchers or students who are active early in the morning or late at night. Be considerate of other occupants.

WBS researchers and classes enjoy exclusive use of the new Coati Trail, which begins beyond the pasture directly across the road from WBS, and connects to the Benavides Trail below Wildsumaco Lodge Trail maps are available at the Lodge. Although other WWS trails may also be used for research and education purposes, WBS residents must remember that these trails also serve the clients of the Wildlife Sanctuary. Residents must be aware of, and take care to observe, any trail closures or area restrictions communicated by WBS or WWS staff.

Consumption of alcoholic beverages by underage individuals is forbidden. Persons of legal age may responsibly consume alcohol after 6:00 p.m. in the evenings within WBS. Under no circumstances, and at no time, is the transport of alcohol allowed off WBS grounds (e.g. along the road or trails). All occupants of WBS must also abide by the rules and regulations of their respective home institutions.

Illegal or disruptive behavior by any individual or group, as well as violation of any instructions from WBS or WWS staff, may result in a permanent ban from WBS and WWS property.
