Description of Need: The National Park Service's (NPS) legislative mandate is to preserve America's natural wonders unimpaired for future generations, while also making them available for the enjoyment of the visitor (16 U.S.C. 1). Various regulations found at 36 CFR parts 1-7 and 43 CFR part 5 require permits for various activities on park lands. The National Park Service is requesting approval of three forms (Forms 10-930, 10-931, and 10-932) used to apply for special use permits for activities on park lands. Proposed activities may include, but are not limited to, special events, First Amendment activities, commercial filming, grazing, and agricultural use. Park managers use the information to determine if the requested use is consistent with the NPS legal authorities, regulations and policy and will not cause unacceptable impacts to park resources and values. The following chart provides the number of respondents, number of annual responses, average completion time, and total annual burden hours by activity.Start Printed Page 14181
