The Green Mountain & Finger Lakes National Forests manage resources to meet sustainable resource management objectives. Management protects natural resource values, public health and safety, and is consistent with the Forest land and resource management plans outlined in the Forest Plan. In order to meet these objectives, permits may be required for the occupancy and use of Forest Service land. Passes assist is funding certain management projects.
Permits are required to use National Forests lands when there is commercial gain, or when there is an impact on Forest resources.
