All research projects that occur in the Duke Forest must be registered and approved in order to track use of the Forest but more importantly, to avoid conflicts between other teaching, research, and management activities.
Reportable activities include, but are not limited to: unfunded projects, pilot studies, student research projects, GIS-based projects that request data from the Office of the Duke Forest, and any projects occurring within the footprint of an existing plot.
You may submit your registration online using the form below, or you may download a PDF that can be sent the Office of the Duke Forest. You should receive an approval within 7 days of your submission.
