Permits & Reservations
Contact the park superintendent well in advance to discuss possible permit or authorizations requirements to allow for sufficient time to process the application.
Researchers who wish to study in the monument (paleontology, geology, history, biology, air quality, water, or any other research) must apply for a permit issued by the monument's research coordinator. See the Visiting Researchers page for information that researchers need to know before submitting a request. If a permit is issued, only then can scientific work be conducted in the monument. Permits will only be issued to bonafide research institutions that have submitted proposals well in advance.
Reservations for Educational Groups
If your educational group wants to participate in the park's education program, Ranger led education programs are available without cost for K-12 school groups, college classes, and continuing education groups by reservation only. Educational materials are also available for groups who cannot visit the park.
