Commune with nature in our National Parks this weekend (July 18-19, 2009) and pay nothing for admission!
As we mentioned in our article in early June, the National Park Service will waive fees this weekend in an effort to increase tourism and boost the economy. Per the earlier press release, “The 147 National Park Service sites across the country that charge fees for entry will waive these entrance fees during the weekends of June 20-21, July 18-19, and August 15-16, 2009…”
Note: “The entrance fees being waived at the 147 sites that usually charge for admission range from $3 to $25. The 244 other parks do not charge entrance fees. The waiver does not include other fees collected in advance or by contractors-such as fees charged for camping, reservations, tours and use of concessions.”
