Land Use Permits

We encourage you to use the open space at High Cove community for your art and science projects. If you wish to collect specimens, install art, or engage in any activity that has impact on the landscape, you’ll need to first submit the AS IF Center Land Use Permit Application.

To describe locations, it’s helpful to download the High Cove topo map and mark locations of your planned activities.

Complete the forms and email to us. We will respond within two weeks. Low-impact activities (collecting photographic data, measuring stream flow) are usually approved quickly.  Activities with higher impact or that have long lasting effects on the landscape (collecting specimens, staking a transect) may require community feedback, may ask for adaptations to your project, and may take a month or longer to approve. Please plan accordingly.
