|I would also recommend a "Thank you to.." in the comments section for granting permission. Though this of course is entirely up to you.|
Actually, you probably should include a little statement in the cache description that the cache, is indeed placed on NPS land, but that it is placed with the permission of "Ranger X". And that you want to Thank him/them for allowing it.
I say this, because once people actually look at the map, or get to the park entrance, and realize its NPS land, they may turn around and not do the cache if they know caches are officially banned on NPS land.
I would also contact the ranger again, and tell him that you are stating in the description that he/she/them specifically gave permission for the cache to be placed.
Its only fair to them to let them know their name is on the line also, so they are not surprised later on by an upset superior if anything happens.
That is a great suggestion.... I also don't want to sound like we're telling you what to do....but I'm sure you'll want to pay very close attention to just what impact your cache will have on plants and vegatation in the area. If it looks like the NPS might say something, just be pro-active and fix things before they have to step in.
Congrats on helping mend a bridge between the two!!! WELL DONE!
