Mark your calendars and pack your bags! The National Park Service has announced their fee free admission days for 2011:
- January 15-17 (Martin Luther King, Jr. Birthday weekend) – keep in mind for next year
- April 16-24 (National Park Week)
- June 21 (First day of summer)
- September 24 (Public Lands Day)
- November 11-13 (Veterans Day weekend)
If you’re strapped for cash and none of those dates fit into your schedule, here’s a helpful hint – many of our 394 national parks never charge an entrance fee, including Nevada’s own Great Basin National Park. Another option, if you volunteer with a National Public Lands Day conservation event you earn a free public lands pass!
