Free Entrance to Southern California National Forests on Saturday
Tomorrow is National Get Outdoors Day and the U.S. Forest Service is waiving fees for all parks. Admission to the Angeles National Forest, along with Los Padres, San Bernardino, and Cleveland national forests will be free.
National Get Outdoors Day is an annual observance that began in 2008. The goal: to encourage families to seek healthy active lives. Studies have found that American
children spend 50 percent less time in the outdoors than they did 20 years ago.
Other "Fee Free" days in national forests this year are National Public Lands Day (Sept. 28), and the Veterans Day weekend (Nov. 9-11). Entrance to national parks will also be free on those days, as well as on August 25, the park service's 97th birthday.
Visitors who accidentally purchase a daily adventure pass on June 8 can have it replaced free-of-charge. Other fees such as campground, reservation, and group site fees, however, may still be applicable.
