During film and other commercial shoots, adequate monitoring and supervision is necessary to protect Preserve resources. Care must also be taken to ensure that regular visitation and Preserve functions are not disrupted. Location agreements, as well as proof of liability insurance, are required for all commercial filming. All agreement conditions must be agreed to and signed by both the applicant and the Preserve before an agreement is valid and use of the site is authorized.

Location agreements, as well as proof of liability insurance, apply to all commercial photography. All agreement conditions must be agreed to and signed by both the applicant and the Preserve before an agreement is valid and use of the site is authorized.
