EPHRATA - Sunday, Aug. 25 is free day at Washington State Parks, one of only four remaining free days this year.
The Aug. 25 free day is to celebrate the National Parks Service 102nd birthday.
On free days, visitors do not need a Discover Pass for day-use visits to state parks.
The free days are in keeping with legislation that created the Discover Pass. The pass costs $30 for an annual pass or $10 for a one-day permit and is required for vehicle access to state recreation lands managed by Washington State Parks, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife and the Department of Natural Resources. The Discover Pass legislation provided that State Parks could designate up to 12 “free days” when the pass would not be required to visit state parks.
The other three remaining free days are National Public Lands Day on Sept. 28, Veterans Day Nov. 11 and Autumn Free Day Nov. 29.
