The Idaho Panhandle National Forests provide public value and unique opportunities for many outdoor recreation events. Adopting an open season application process allows the forest to meet customer needs in a more efficient manner while responding to an increasing number of requests for special use permit authorizations within budget constraints. For additional information about the application process for recreation events, please contact the special use permit administrator at the district office nearest you.
