The National Wildlife Refuge System has three different special use permit application forms that are relevant to the monument. These special use permits allow the public to engage in activities within the monument. These forms are available in a fillable format.

The prospective permit holder should fill out the appropriate application, sign it, and return it to the superintendent of the monument. The permit is not valid until approved and signed by a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service official.
