Teaching and research conducted within the University of Central Florida’s natural lands is encouraged. Through site use permits, the protection of biological resources on campus is accomplished. Permits allow us to minimize conflicts between users, to prevent unsuitable uses, and to coordinate projects with management activities. In addition, as part of the stewardship of the natural areas on campus, teaching and research activities utilizing the campus are documented through the site use permits. Anyone wanting to use the campus natural areas for teaching or research is asked to fill out the appropriate form and submit it, via email, at least two weeks prior to the requested timeframe.
