Fort Frederica National Monument
A special use permit is required for activities that provide a benefit to an individual, group, or organization rather than the public at large and that require some degree of management from the National Park Service to protect park resources and the public interest. Some examples of special events that require permits are:
A photography/filming permit is required for any filming or photography involving models, sets, or props. An application form is on the bottom of this page. Please return to the address listed above with the appropriate application fee.
Many of the park's settings are ideally suited for small, informal weddings. All weddings require an approved wedding special use permit.
First Amendment Activities
Freedom of speech, press, religion, and assembly are constitutional rights. However, the courts have recognized that activities associated with the exercise of these rights may be reasonably regulated to protect park resources. Therefore, all first amendment activities require special use permits and the NPS may regulate the time, place, and manner in which they are conducted. Examples of activities that require permits are: distribution and/or sale of printed matter, religious services, public demonstrations, or assemblies.
Other activities may require permits if there is the potential for interference with visitor use, congestion of a highly visited area, or possible impact on park resources.
