The NPS administers these regulations to provide for scientific research while also protecting park resources and other park uses from adverse impacts that could occur if inappropriate scientific research and collecting studies or science education activities were to be conducted within park boundaries. NPS uses the collected information for managing the use and preservation of park resources and for reporting to the public the status of permitted research and collecting activities. NPS is requesting that OMB renew its approval of the current Application for a Scientific Research and Collecting Permit, Application for a Science Education Permit, and Investigator’s Annual Report collection of information forms.
