Freebie Alert: Get Outdoors Without The Fee | Environment
It's sometimes a deterrent for the outdoorsman. State parks will be asking you to shell out a few bucks (or $35 if you buy a Discover Pass) just to get in. But for all of those who want to save a little but still want to get outside, there's a day to get in free!
On June 9, Washington State Parks as well as National Parks across the country will waive entrance fees for "Get Outdoors Day." It's all part of an effort by the federal government and Washington's Geovernor Christine Gregoire to give people an incentive to enjoy nature around us.
Another perk for all Washingtonians, you do not have to have a Discover Pass that day for parking! There's only one catch...there are some parks that will charge you fees. Lands managed by the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife and the Department of Natural Resources will no participate in this day.
