Research Permit Applications
Mammoth Cave National Park actively encourages and facilitates research on the park (both surface and cave related). However, research and collections at National Parks requires a permit. If you are interested in starting a research project on the park, please contact the Cave Specialist and Research Coordinator for the park, for assistance in applying for a research permit. The application for collecting and research permits for Mammoth Cave National Park (and all other national parks) is via a centralized website. It can be filled out at https://irma.nps.gov/RPRS/.
When considering research and collecting permits, there are several important things to remember about collecting material on park.
