Included here are two useful forms on liability that need to be reviewed, signed, photocopied and submitted to the PPB Coordinator prior to conducting any field work. Do NOT send either of the forms to the landowner – both must be sent to the PPB Coordinator where they will remain safely filed.

If the PPB participant is under 18 years of age, forms must be signed by a parent or guardian. Make sure that the private landowner, land manager or agency staff approves all forms. Remember, this is a serious issue; do not enter any property without full permission.
