Pre-registration required for all classes and programs except where noted. Registration deadlines are one week before classes. Register early; class sizes are limited. Classes may be cancelled due to low enrollment. Walk-in registration may be available if space and supplies allow. Call 608- 246-4550 for availability if the pre-registration deadline has passed. If using your Olbrich volunteer benefit card, you must pre-register for applicable classes.

Cancellations and Refunds

Class registrants who cancel 7 or more days prior to the class are subject to a 20% processing fee (minimum of $5). Cancellations less than 7 days notice are non-refundable; please consider your payment a donation to the Gardens. Refunds are not given for missed classes. Classes cancelled by Olbrich due to low enrollment or hazardous weather conditions are fully refunded automatically. You will be notified by telephone as early as possible if a program is cancelled. Olbrich is not responsible for lack of notification if you do not have an answering service.

Food & Beverage

Olbrich does not have food available for purchase. Unless otherwise stated, please bring your own snack or bag lunch to classes that occur through lunchtime. Beverages are available for the public in the Growing Gifts Shop.
