Free Entry to Grand Canyon Saturday

Grand Canyon National Park will be joining national
park units across the country in celebrating National Public Lands Day
(NPLD) with fee free entry into the park. 

National Public Lands Day began in 1994 and is intended to encourage shared
stewardship of our nation’s public lands. Today, NPLD is the nation’s
largest hands-on volunteer effort to improve and enhance federal, state and
local public lands. In Grand Canyon National Park, volunteers and park
staff will be working with the park’s Vegetation Program on native plant
restoration and exotic plant control.

This year, NPLD will be celebrated on Saturday, September 24.  Visitors who
arrive on the 24th will be allowed to enter the park free of charge. Those
who plan to spend time in the park beyond the 24th will need to pay the
regular entrance fee for the remainder of their stay.

Park visitors are reminded that the fee-free designation applies to
entrance fees only and does not affect fees for camping, reservations,
tours, or use of concessions. Park entrance stations will have Interagency
Senior and Annual Passes available for those who wish to purchase them.

Additional fee-free days in 2011 will include Veteran’s Day weekend
(November 11 – 13.)
