September 24 Free Day In Rocky
America’s Best Idea – the national parks – gets even better with fee-free days. Another fee-free day is coming up this Saturday, September 24 at Rocky Mountain National Park. This is a great way to explore our heritage of beautiful park lands and enjoy the real Colorado landscape.
The more than 100 national parks that usually charge entrance fees will waive admission on Sept. 24 in honor of National Public Lands Day. Many of those who visit parks on this day will take part in volunteer work such as building trails, collecting trash, removing invasive plants and other improvement projects.
National Public Lands Day began in 1994. Last year, more than 175,000 volunteers worked on 2,000 events at parks around the country.
A trip to a National Park is one of the best things to do in Colorado, and free entrance makes it an excellent deal as well.
Free days are announced by the park service to celebrate special events. The next National Park Service fee free days this year will be held on November 11 in honor of Veterans Day.
