In honor of Veteran’s Day, a number of park organizations will not charge admission for the holiday weekend.
Entry to all 117 Washington state parks will be free from Saturday through Nov.11.
A Discover Pass, $10 a day or $30 a year, will still be needed to access lands managed by the state departments of Natural Resources and Fish and Wildlife during State Parks free days. For more information, visit discoverpass.wa.gov.
The National Park Service also will not charge entrance fees those days. That means a savings of $15 to enter parks such as Mount Rainier and Olympic.
Other Department of Interior agencies not charging admission during Veterans Day weekend include the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Bureau of Land Management and the Bureau of Reclamation. The U.S. Forest Service is another federal agency not charging admission for the weekend.
In celebration of Veterans Day, Northwest Trek Wildlife Park and Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium will offer free admission Nov. 10-11 to all individuals who are currently serving or have honorably served in the U.S. military.
Visitors must bring an active military/veteran identification card, discharge papers, DD214s or any other proof of honorable U.S. military service.
