Free Entrance To Yellowstone For National Public Lands Day


The National Park Service is offering free entry to Yellowstone and all national parks on Saturday, September 28, in conjunction with National Public Lands Day.

The nation’s largest single-day volunteer effort for public lands is now in its 20th year.

A seven-day pass to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks is normally $25 for a private, non-commercial vehicle. Camping and other fees will not be waived.

The NPS is waiving entrance fees on 11 days in 2013 as a way to encourage people to get outdoors and enjoy the remarkable landscapes and historical and cultural sites national parks have to offer. 

Entrance fees will also be waived on November 9-11, which is the Veteran’s Day holiday weekend.

More information is available at http://www.nps.gov/findapark/feefreeparks.htm and http://www.publiclandsday.org/.

Bison in Yellowstone.

There are more people hurt by bison than by bears each year in Yellowstone. Park regulations state that visitors must stay at least 25 yards away from bison or elk and 100 yards away from bears.
