Yellowstone National Park to Waive Entrance Fee on National Public Lands Day

(Washington, D.C.) –  All National Park Service sites, including Yellowstone National Park will offer free visitor admission on Saturday, September 29 in honor of National Public Lands Day.  All Entrance fees, including commercial tour entrance fees and transportation entrance fees, will be waived on this day.  A seven-day pass to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks is normally $25 for a private, non-commercial vehicle.

“America’s public lands showcase the country’s spectacular beauty and fascinating history,” said National Park Service Director Mary A. Bomar.  “I encourage everyone to take advantage of this fee free day to explore a national park or lend a hand to help the land.”

Nine federal agencies, 125 state and local partners, dozens of non-profit organizations, tens of thousands of individuals, and national sponsor Toyota Motor Sales, USA are expected to participate in more than a thousand volunteer projects across the country.  Please visit http://www.publiclandsday.org for more information.

Other federal agencies not charging for admittance that day include the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Bureau of Land Management, the Bureau of Reclamation, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and the U.S. Forest Service.
