Researchers are required to complete the Researcher Check-in form for each unique visit to Yellowstone National Park when conducting field work. This program will help to communicate to rangers and Research Permit Office staff where and when you will be working in the park. You will no longer be required to telephone the district rangers unless your permit conditions indicate otherwise. Unique trips can be just one day or up to one month. If you are here working for more than one month at a time, please contact the Research Permit Office (307-344-2234 or 2239) for special instructions.

The Researcher Check-in form is fairly simple. However, you may want to review the step-by-step instructions for password information.

If you have questions, please contact the Research Permit Office at (307)344-2234 or 2239.
