What Do I Need To Do To Apply For Permit?
You will need to submit these two completed forms - be sure to sign them both. Also, read the common conditions
for other events.
1) Fillable Special Use Permit Application
2) A threatened and endangered species addendum
Please provide a detailed description of your event, including any advertising. A map must be included if you will be in more than one area of the parks, indicating which trails or locations you will be using, and any stations you may be setting up. A website, for your organization or event, if you have one, is great too. The more detail you provide the better. All park regulations apply to special events, unless a specific written exemption is approved and included in the permit, so please be sure to review the section on “common conditions” before submitting your request. If a question does not apply to your event, please indicate "none," or "does not apply," or something similar, rather than leaving a blank. It is also important if you are including any "commercial" services (ie, commercial photographer) that you let us know that in your application. These must be addressed during the review and in your permit and exceptions to common conditions are not guaranteed. Please indicate the maximum number of entrants for your event.
You will be required to provide a copy of a Certificate of Insurance for your event. You must have $1 million liability with a $3 million aggregate, issued by a US based company with an A- or better BEST rating. The United States and the State of California must appear as additional insureds. Please include a list of any equipment your will be bringing.
Please provide pictures and descriptions of signs if you plan to post them; include materials and measurements. Signs may not be attached to any made-made or natural feature in the park. Signs may only be posted the day of the event and must be removed in a timely manner.
