Senior and Access Passes
The "Senior" and "Access" versions of the America the Beautiful Pass - the National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Pass - are good for a lifetime. In addition to being available online and at outlets, you can receive them by mail.
The Access pass is free and the Senior pass is just $10. There is a $10 processing fee to receive either pass by the mail.
To get your Senior pass through the mail, just submit a completed application, proof of residency and age, and $20. The fee covers the cost of the pass and a document processing fee. You can print out an application at this website: http://store.usgs.gov/pass/index.html
Once the application package is received and the documentation verified, the pass will be mailed to you.
The application for the Access pass is also available at http://store.usgs.gov/pass/index.html.
To receive the Access pass, mail the completed application along with proof of residency and documentation of permanent disability plus the $10 document processing fee. Once the application package is received and verified, the pass and the documentation of permanent disability you provided will be mailed to you.
