Who Needs a Research Permit?
Please go to the National Park Service Permit System to apply for a Research Permit.
Information Specific to Social Scientists
You must obtain a Research Permit from the park as well. Mount Rainier National Park has many surveys being conducted, most occurring in June, July, and August. To minimize the likelihood that visitors will be approached by multiple surveyors, the park carefully considers both the location and timing of survey distribution. The Research Coordinator will contact you to discuss details after they receive your permit application.
