Plans for the weekend? Go to a National Park (for free!)

The National Park Service announced today that this Saturday, September 24th, will be a fee-free day – meaning that you will not have to pay any entrance fees when going into a National Park. Septmeber 24th was specifically chosen since it is also National Public Lands Day. National Public Lands Day, which was started in 1994, is the largest single-day volunteer event held for public lands in the United States. Last year over 170,000 people volunteered to improve our public lands for outdoor recreation.Volunteer opportunities for this year are listed on the National Public Land Days website.  If you cannot volunteer, head over to your nearest National Park and enjoy a fee-free day of recreating!
