Forest Service offers 4-day fee-free weekend in honor of Veterans Day

Several public lands will waive entry fees in honor of Veterans Day.

Washington State Parks and the National Park Service have designated Nov. 11 as a fee free day. The U.S. Forest Service is waiving fees Nov. 8-11.

“We honor our veterans each Nov. 11 and every other day of the year,” U.S. Forest Service chief Tom Tidwell said in a prepared statement. “We hope that this time will serve as a way for our veterans and other visitors to find our national forests and grasslands, a place where they can take time out for themselves.”
