Following the lead of the National Park Service, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is offering fee-free days during 2012. On these dates, all recreation-related fees will be waived. One of the main objectives of fee-free days is to provide people who may be constrained by the cost of the fees the opportunity to recreate on public lands. The fee-free days for this year are as follows:
January 14 to 16th (that’s today! Hurry, drop what you are doing and go recreate on some BLM lands)
June 9th (“Get Outdoors” Day)
September 29th (National Public Lands Day)
November 10th to 12th (Veteran’s Day weekend)
