Everyone can experience National Parks free on Aug. 4, the anniversary of the Great American Outdoors Act. All NPS sites will have free admission.
The GAOA, “passed in 2020, improves infrastructure and expanding recreation opportunities in national parks and other public lands,” says the National Parks Service. The legislation established the National Parks and Public Lands Legacy Restoration Fund and guaranteed permanent funding for the existing Land and Water Conservation Fund.
The National Park Service invites you to discover “American history in all its diversity, from the homes of poets and Presidents to ancient archeological places to the sobering stories of Civil War soldiers and civilians to the legacy of Rosa Parks, a courageous woman who refused to give up her seat on a bus. Our history is part of who we were, who we are, and who we will be,” says the NPS. So start planning your visit.
