Now there is a permission requirement in play.:
I am looking at setting up an earthcache on lands managed by the NPWS (National Parks and Wildlife Service) in NSW and am wondering if anybody else has had any experiences to share in this situation.3. Permission
Landowner or land manager permission is required for most EarthCache locations.
It is important the land manager understands that your EarthCache may bring more people to the site. This will allow managers to plan for any challenges that might arise from the EarthCache publication. We want land owners/managers to be aware of the role EarthCaches can play in attracting visitors.
When providing the permission, post a Reviewer Note with the name, title, and contact information of the person who granted permission. You may also wish to include a copy of the email that they sent to you. All Reviewer Notes are auto-deleted before a cache is published, but the information is available to Groundspeak staff and volunteers should the need arise in future.
Public lands are managed in different ways throughout the world; therefore, there are some instances where the land owner's/manager's permission is not required. Your local EarthCache reviewer may be able to help determine if permission is required or not, but if you are certain that the location requires no permission, please explain this to the reviewer in a Reviewer Note on the cache page.
I am especially interested in the best person/department to contact, whether I also need to fill out the http://www.geocachingnsw.asn.au/index.p ... -form.html NPWS consent form, and if there is any cost involved.
Thanks in advance for sharing your experiences and wit.
