2015 Federal Fee-Free Days

01/01/2015

Several federal land management agencies have announced fee-free days for 2015, including National Public Lands Day (NPLD) on September 26. A fee-free day is when parks, refuges, forests and rangelands offer free entry or waive the standard amenity fee for visitors.

Along with NPLD, Martin Luther King Jr. Day and Veterans Day are free entrance days at Bureau of Land Management, National Park Service, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and U.S. Forest Service lands. There are also additional fee-free days specific to agencies, such as the National Park Service providing free entry on August 25 to celebrate their 99th birthday and the first Sunday of U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's National Refuge Week on October 11.
