Special Use Permits are also available and required for specific and pre-approved activities on County park and conservation lands. These activities must be consistent with current County ordinances, rules, regulations and applicable state and federal laws. The special use request must not pose a risk to public health or safety, and it must not unreasonably conflict or interfere with other public uses of County-owned lands. The permit is granted for a specific use of County land for a specific period of time; there is no charge for Special Use Permits. Depending on the special use activity, a certificate of liability insurance may be required with the Special Use Permit.
Special Use Permits have been issued to qualified individuals for the following purposes: ● Eagle Scout projects (Louise Moore Park and Fry’s Run Park) ● Turtle research at Bear Swamp Park and in the Minsi Lake Wilderness Area ● Chickadee research in the Minsi Lake Wilderness Area ● Drone videography at Bear Swamp Park & Minsi Lake ● Plant sale at Fry’s Run Park ● Stream cleanup and recreational birdwatching at Archibald Johnston Conservation Area ● Radio controlled model aircraft flying ● Beekeeping at Gracedale Open Space Lands.
