SPECIAL USE PERMITS
A special park use is a short-term activity that takes place in a park area and provides a benefit to an individual, group or organization, rather than the public at large. The National Park Service may permit a special park use providing the activity will not cause derogation of the park's resources or values, visitor experiences, or the purpose for which the park was established. Primary consideration will be given to potential resource damage, anticipated disruption of normal public use, and previously approved permitted activities. Fort Union National Monument issues permits for the following activities:
APPLICATION FOR SPECIAL USE PERMITS
If an applicant wishes to proceed, they must fill out the Application for a Special Use Permit and send to the park to the attention of the Superintendent. Unless requested use is an exercise of a First Amendment right, applications must be accompanied by a non-refundable, $100.00 check made out to "The National Park Service."
If approved, a Special Use Permit will be sent to the applicant, along with a Hold Harmless Clause. Both must be signed and returned to the Superintendent before the permit approval is final.
