We have developed three different Special Use Permit (SUP) forms which would enable the public to engage in activities on a national wildlife refuge.
To meet OMB requirements that encourage electronic information collection, we designed the new forms as both the application and the permit. These new forms are available to the public online in a fillable format. It is now possible for prospective permittees to fill out the first pages of the form, print it, sign it, and return it to the refuge for processing. The permit is not valid until approved and signed by a refuge official.

The above-referenced activities are not necessarily conducted on every refuge. Contact the refuge manager to inquire whether we consider the proposed use appropriate or compatible at the individual refuge.
