Cape Ann Trail Stewards Volunteer Waiver
I have volunteered to join on one or more projects/walks for Cape Ann Trail Stewards (“CATS”). I agree to assume all risks of loss and injury that may arise out of my volunteer service with CATS and I agree to indemnify CATS and the landowners, its officers, directors, employees, and volunteers (the “Released Parties”) and hold them harmless from any and all liability, claims, demands or actions or causes of action whatsoever, arising out of damage, loss or injury to my person or property, whether anticipated or unanticipated, while engaging in volunteer service to CATS, whether such damage, loss, or injury results from the negligence of the Released Parties, their respective agents, officers, employees, successors, assigns and insurers or from some other cause. This release and agreement shall be binding upon me, my heirs, successors, assigns, administrators and executors.
I am familiar with the projects/walks for which I have volunteered and I realize that working on these projects/walks may involve risks and hazards, which may include, but are not limited to (1) the use of tools and other construction related equipment, (2) working around other participants who may not be accustomed to this type of labor or the tools and equipment associated with it, (3) working in terrain that may be uneven, rocky and otherwise hazardous; (4) performing activities that may be strenuous and physically taxing. I am aware of these and other risks and hazards inherent in participating in these projects and hereby assume sole responsibility for all such risks and hazards. To the best of my knowledge, I am physically able to perform the tasks expected of me in my volunteer projects without risk to me.
CATS may utilize my image in photographic or video recordings of these projects, and I waive any right to claim compensation in exchange for participating. I am familiar with CATS Volunteer Policies and agree to abide by them while participating in its volunteer projects. I have read and understood the foregoing waiver and release of liability and agree to it.
