|Requirements for Use
To insure the integrity of research sites, do not remove stakes, pipes, flags, traps and other miscellaneous items that may belong to other researchers. To inform the reserve director and other users which stakes or other research-related items are yours, it is helpful to put your initials and a date on them. At the end of a research project, each user should take the responsibility to police the sites used to ensure that all materials are removed, unless specific items such as plot markers or traps are to be left for research purposes. When a project is completed, please inform the reserve director so that he can discuss with you any points of interest or make decisions regarding the removal of materials that could be of use once they are no longer needed for your work.
