Navigating the Blm Proposal Submission Process to Gain Scientific Entries to Fort Stanton Cave

Knutt Peterson

BLM Roswell Field Office, 2909W 2nd St, Roswell, NM, 88201, knuttpet@blm.gov

Fort Stanton Cave is a unique environment which offers scientists and researchers the opportunity to discover, study, and explore the unknown.

The Bureau of Land Management’s Roswell Field Office Cave Program supports science and research by offering funding opportunities and special access to study the unanswered questions that Fort Stanton Cave has to offer. The first step to conducting research in Fort Stanton Cave is to submit a proposal to the BLM. In the past proposal requirements have been vague and seemingly convoluted, but for the 2023 caving season a new streamlined submission process will be in place.

The Cave and Karst Specialist from the BLM Roswell Field Office will discuss the new proposal submission process and the steps each proposal goes through during the review process.
