National Park Fee Free Days
There are several days each year that are fee free across the National Park Service. The days in 2021 are listed below. Please check operating status at this park and others before traveling as there may be changes due to Covid-19.

Sandburg Virtual Story Slam
January 27-30, 2021
Throughout the month of January, storytellers are invited to prepare a true five-minute story, take a video of themselves reading the story, and submit the video to be shared here on the official Carl Sandburg Home Facebook page. Videos will be posted on Facebook from January 27-29, and the winners announced on Saturday, January 30, at 10am. Stories should reflect the theme of “seasons,” such as nature’s change of seasons, a story from a favorite season, or the seasons of life.

A panel of judges will rate the stories, with first place awarded $100, second place $75, and third place, $50. All storytellers will receive a small thank you gift for participating. Watch a selection of video submissions at Facebook
