Saturday, September 27, 2014, Wright Brothers National Memorial will celebrate National Public Lands Day by offering free admission to park visitors. "National Public Lands Day is truly the best opportunity to help the public understand the value of setting aside public lands for the benefit of all users.We encourage everyone to come visit the Memorial - whether you live down the road or across the country - and take advantage of this "fee free" day to experience your national parks or national wildlife refuges" stated Acting Superintendent Kym Hall.
National Public Lands Day (NPLD) is the largest, hands-on volunteer effort in the United States designed to improve and enhance public lands for all Americans to enjoy.NPLD is supported by several Federal land management agencies and is supported nationally and locally by agency partner organizations.The annual event encourages everyone to get outside and enjoy the great outdoors!
National Park Service staff at Wright Brothers National Memorial, Fort Raleigh National Historic Site, and Cape Hatteras National Seashore encourage the park's friends, neighbors and visitors to get reacquainted with their local national parks on National Public Lands Day.Entrance fees for passengers in both private and commercial vehicles will be waived at Wright Brothers National Memorial on September 27, 2014, while recreation "user fees" such as camping fees and lighthouse climbing fees are not covered under this waiver.
