State permit policies & procedures

Back to Permits Page

Bureau of Land Management

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), on a case-by-case basis, may require a permit or other authorization for biological research conducted on BLM-managed public lands, particularly where a research proposal involves surface disturbance, is in a wilderness area, or may have impacts to other natural or cultural resources.  Researchers are well-advised to contact the local BLM Field Office, District Office or State Office before conducting research so the BLM can determine what authorization may be required.  Researchers should provide a written description of the research proposal, including a site location, estimated time and duration of the project, and any ground disturbing activities including the establishment of monitoring or observation equipment.  

GET IT IN WRITING! REQUEST A LETTER OR E-MAIL CONFIRMING THE FACT THAT YOU HAVE AUTHORIZATION TO CONDUCT THE RESEARCH IN THAT LOCATION AND CARRY A COPY OF THAT LETTER WITH YOU WHEN IN THE FIELD, JUST AS YOU WOULD CARRY A COPY OF ALL OTHER REQUIRED PERMITS.
