BLM Montrose 2010 Special Recreation Permit Applications Due August 31
Applications for event permits that do not qualify as commercial outfitter or organized group permits must be submitted six months prior to the event.
Special Recreation Permits (SRP) are required for a variety of recreation activities on BLM public lands. They are used to ensure public health and safety, protect recreation and natural resources, and ensure the public receives a fair monetary return for certain recreation uses of BLM public lands. SRPs are required for commercial activities, competitive events, certain organized group activities and in some designated special areas.
To determine what kind of permit might be required for your planned event or outing, contact Amy Sharp, UFO Recreation Planner, at 970-240-5387 or visit us online at http://www.blm.gov/co/st/en/BLM_Programs/recreation/Special_Recreation_Permits.html.
