Special Use Permits and Fees
In order to coordinate special park use events, it is necessary to require permits for certain activities. These activities include, but are not limited to, special events, public assembly, and meetings. To protect the resources and preserve the purpose of the park, permits are necessary for commercial photography, memorialization of human ashes, collecting of research specimens, sale or distribution of printed material, and for events or services not offered to the general public.
