Fees

2020 Christmas Promotion

A one-hour in-person visit costs $95 if you purchase before December 24 2020 and book your event for before February 28, 2021. (Regular price: $125.) Upon receiving payment, I will email you a printable gift certificate to give to the lucky recipient. If you cannot host your event by Feb 28, the cost will increase to the regular price and the difference must be paid before the visit occurs. The only exception to this is if there are Covid restrictions in place which prevent it, in which case the deadline will be extended as needed.

In-Person Programs:
Schools, Homeschools, and Private Events

The program “Bug Bonanza” costs $200. A multiple booking discount is available; subsequent programs booked on the same day at the same location will be $180.

The program “Bug Basics” costs $125.

A deposit of 50% is required as soon as possible after your booking in order to reserve your date and time. The balance is due on the day of program delivery.

If you cancel your booking with at least two weeks notice, your deposit will be returned to you. If you cancel with less than two weeks notice, your deposit is forfeited. The only exception is if you must cancel due to unforeseen circumstances such as a snowstorm or other emergency. In this case, you may either ask to have your deposit returned to you or rebook within two weeks after the cancellation.

If we must cancel a program due to illness or unforeseen circumstances,  you can either re-book or cancel with no penalty.


Virtual Programs

A one hour virtual program costs $75.


Rent a Pet Isopod Kits

FOR SCHOOLS: A one month rental including pick-up and drop-off at your school costs $30.

Pick-up/drop-off service is included for Calgary and Okotoks only. If your school is outside this area, a travel surcharge of $30 will apply or you can arrange your own pick-up. Please contact.

FOR HOMESCHOOLS: A two week rental costs $20. This price does not include drop-off/pick-up; you’ll need to arrange it yourself. However, delivery service is available for an additional $30.

FOR EVERYONE: If any supplies are lost or damaged, replacement fees are as follows:
-$20 per book.
-$10 for each non-book item.
-Zebra isopods are very hardy and easy to care for, so their death is highly unlikely. (You’d pretty much have to kill them deliberately.) In the unlikely event of colony death, the fee is $50.
