National Parks to waive fees

PUBLIC LANDS — National parks and many other public land management areas will be waiving entrance fees on Saturday (Sept. 24) to celebrate National Public Lands Day.

The Park Service is waiving fees for a total of 17 days in 2011, the weekend of Veterans Day (Nov. 11-13).

Fee-free days have been offered the past two years as a cost-friendly family vacation option in the economic slump.
