Placing an EarthCache for a limited time

I have been granted permission to place 6 EarthCaches in a park here in Kentucky but for only a short period of time; less than a year. The way the permit reads is "This form may be used to permit either LONG TERM (not to exceed 5 yrs) or SHORT TERM (not to exceed 1 yr) uses. ". Short term was the box checked.

 

This park would be a great place for EarthCaches but what I am wondering is, is it worth it in the long run to have them there only a year. Or better yet, could I even get them published on being there just a short period of time.

 

Thanks!!

The Devils Postpile NM did the same thing to me. They explained that they wanted to see how the visitation affects the resources. This is a new concept to them and they are being cautious. If after a year, there are still no concerns, I could reapply for a long term permit. My EarthCaches were published.

 

It is a tool that the managers are using so that they can request the EarthCache be delisted without much fuss. I would go ahead and do it.

Thanks so much for the help pn this one. Like I said this place would be great for EarthCaches and I wanted to give people the chance to visit it. I'll call the cheif ranger and talk to him about a long term deal after the first year
