National Park Pass Price Increase
If you expect to visit a national park more than twice in the coming year, you may want to buy a National Park Pass before the end of this month. The cost of an annual pass, which has been $50 for the past few years, will go up to $80 with the introduction of a new kind recreation pass called the America The Beautiful pass. The new pass will also be available for free if you're willing to volunteer 500 hours of labor valued at $0.16 per hour.
We'd love to hear your comments on this new pass. Please call our toll-free comment line: 866-590-7373.
Thanks to Kurt at National Parks Traveler, and Scott at Wild Wilderness for tipping us off about this.
