WEST GLACIER, MONT – Entrance fees to Glacier National Park and the additional 393 National Park Sites will be waived during National Park Week, April 16-24, 2011. In January, the Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar announced 17 fee-free days in our National Parks, Monuments and Sites. National Park Week is the longest fee-free period this year.

"In these tough economic times, our fee-free days will give families many opportunities to enjoy our nation's heritage and natural beauty in meaningful and affordable ways," Salazar said.

"Enjoying Glacier National Park, in all of its seasons, can be rewarding. The first signs of spring are now appearing which also results in the annual migration of birds in the Park. The National Park Service invites you to take advantage of our National Treasures and enjoy them for free for the week," remarked Glacier National Park's Superintendent Chas Cartwright.

The first three fee-free days were in January during the Martin Luther King holiday weekend. Additional fee-free dates beyond National Park Week will be the first day of summer (June 21), National Public Lands Day (September 24), and the weekend of Veterans Day (November 11-13).
