Research PermittingYukon-Charley National Preserve welcomes research projects designed to enhance the understanding of resources or systems for the purposes of preserve management and the advancement of broad scientific understanding. A Scientific Research and Collection Permit is required to conduct research on all National Park Service (NPS) lands.
Researchers are encouraged to contact the preserve research coordinator early to discuss proposed work and streamline the permitting process.
DeadlinesResearch permit application deadlines are as follows:
- March 31 for projects starting between May 1 and August 31
- 60 days in advance for projects starting between September 1 and April 30
To Apply1. Submit your proposal to the online NPS Research and Permit and Reporting System at https://irma.nps.gov/rprs/Home. This site requires you to enter basic information regarding your project. Upload a study plan to accompany the online application.
Note that large documents may be difficult to load, so it is best to remove unnecessarily large images, or simply break up the study plan into two or three smaller files. Researchers without access to the internet can contact the preserve research coordinator for an application form.
2. Complete a short questionnaire describing proposed field operations. Questionnaire can be obtained by contacting the preserve research coordinator.
