General Policies for Facilities Rental

Deposits and Payments: Upon signing the rental agreement, you will be expected to provide a non-refundable deposit equal to one-third of total estimated charges.  The balance is due prior to the day of the event.

Pricing: Facility space is rented at an hourly rate, with a four-hour minimum from Sunday to Saturday.  Separate rates apply, depending on which area or areas of CEC or BNR are rented.  Amenities and educational activities are also available at additional charges.

Planning the details: All final planning decisions are due five days before the event, by noon.

Catering: The CEC maintains a list of preferred caterers for events held at CEC.

Temporary Decorations: We are flexible about temporary decoration.  Any signs, flowers, decorations, posters or the like may be temporarily displayed as long as the Administrative Officer has approved them beforehand.

Entertainment: We ask that you assume responsibility for providing your own entertainment and we expect that you will be accountable for their appearance and actions.  All entertainment is subject to the approval of CEC.  Unfortunately, loud music is not allowed on the premises due to safety considerations for the wildlife around us.

Time to leave already? A 30-minute grace period is allowed beyond the planned ending time, in order for your guests to depart.  Additional time will be charged as one full hour at the quoted rate.
