Free entrance to national parks this Saturday



This Saturday, Sept 25, the National Park Service is offering free access to 392 national parks to commemorate National Public Lands Day, reports the America's Great Outdoors Campaign, a community-based conservation awareness effort.

The National Park Service says the fee waiver includes: entrance fees, commercial tour fees, and transportation entrance fees. Exluded are reservation, camping, tours, and concession fees as well as fees collected by third parties.

The National Public Lands Day is set aside to celebrate outdoors recreation, but the America's Great Outdoors Campaign says it should also remind Americans of the importance of our protected areas.

"While families are enjoying this special weekend, we must also remember that national parks need to be protected for future generations," stated a release from the America's Great Outdoors Campaign, which is asking people to "tell President Obama what they want to see on his conservation agenda by sending a comment to the White House and Department of Interior."
