While the Olympic National Park Annual Pass and the America the Beautiful – National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Annual Pass will not be discounted, they are also for sale at Discover Your Northwest locations and may be purchased as gifts.
“The Olympic National Park annual pass is a great value for anyone who makes at least two trips into the park in a year,” mentioned Olympic National Park Superintendent Karen Gustin.
Discover Your Northwest sale items and park passes will be offered at the following locations:
Discover Your Northwest promotes the discovery of Northwest public lands, enriches the experience of visitors, and builds community stewardship of these special places today and for generations to come. Towards this goal, Discover Your Northwest operates on-site educational bookstores that provide visitors with high-quality books, toys, DVDs, and other items that help them appreciate the natural and historical significance of the area.
At Olympic, Discover Your Northwest funds the park’s winter and summer newspapers, as well as educational trail guides, and has contributed to the construction of several park nature trails.
Proceeds from the $30 annual Olympic National Park Pass also benefit Olympic National Park. Eighty percent of the fee revenue collected in Olympic National Park remains in Olympic National Park, where it is used for projects that directly benefit park visitors, including trail maintenance, campground improvements, installation of accessible restroom and visitor service.
