To qualify for a fee waiver, the purpose of the visit must be educational rather than recreational and must be related directly to the resources of the area. Please submit requests at least 3 weeks prior to your scheduled visit.
Requests for fee waivers must be made by a recognized educational institution on school letterhead. The letter must include information regarding the specific educational purpose of the trip (i.e. class curriculum or content standards addressed), the date of the scheduled trip, and the number of students, teachers, and chaperones participating.
The fee waiver will include up to five chaperones not including teachers and the chaperones must have a copy of the fee waiver if driving a separate vehicle. If there are more than five chaperones accompanying the group and they are drivng separate vehicles, they will be subject to the recreation fee.
