OLYMPIA – In honor of National Public Lands Day, the Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission is offering a free day at state parks on Saturday, Sept. 28.
No Discover Pass will be required for day-use visits by vehicle.
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 two remaining free days are Veterans Day Nov. 11 and Autumn Free Day Nov. 29.
