Tucson, AZ – Saguaro National Park invites everyone to come celebrate the National Park Service’s 98th Birthday with free entrance to both districts of the park all day on Monday, August 25.
“Ninety-eight years ago national parks were created to preserve America’s most special places for all people to enjoy,” said to Andy L. Fisher, Chief of Interpretation for Saguaro National Park. “This year we celebrate another year in our first century while looking forward to our centennial birthday and the legacy that the National Park Service will continue to provide to every American.”
In addition to free entrance into the park, Western National Parks Association (WNPA) will offer a 15% discount on all book and gift sales to visitors in both of Saguaro National Park’s visitor centers on Monday.
Active duty members of the U.S. Military and their dependents are reminded that they may be issued a free America the Beautiful pass any day between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. at either visitor center. This pass will permit the pass owner, and up to 3 other adults traveling with them, entrance into all National Parks for 12 months. They must show a current, valid military identification card to qualify for the pass. Additional passes are available to anyone for purchase. Inquire inside either visitor center for additional information.
Please remember that the fee free day waives entrance fees only. Additional user fees, such as backcountry camping permit fees, still apply.
