At least one month's notice and application for Special Use Permits is required.
The base application fee for a Special Use Permit is variable and is non-refundable. Additional fees for monitoring, administrative costs, and restoration may apply.
If you are not familiar with Bandelier, a pre-visit is encouraged. The location where the event is to take place needs to be determined before the day of the event. There may be special restrictions in the area that could limit access.
Filming permits are issued on an individual basis based on the size of the project (movie, commercial, etc.), how many staff are needed for supervision, and how much time will be involved. Additional fees may be required depending on the situation. Call Kim at (505) 672-3861 x 502 for details on special use permits or filming permits.
