The National Park Service (NPS) will conduct a study at Timpanogos Cave National Monument. The study consists of a survey and a focus group using a random sample of visitors and residents of the communities surrounding the park. The collection will be used to understand visitors and local resident's perceptions and evaluations of the following management issues:
(1) Cave tour size and frequency.
(2) Ticketing process and fees.

The information from this collection will provide NPS managers and planners with visitors and community members' perceptions of how each of the above management issue affects their overall quality of visit experience. Visitors' opinions about cave tour size and frequency as well as the ticketing process will be incorporated with ecological survey data to determine the most appropriate resource management strategy that balance between protection of the cave and visitor experience.
