PUBLIC LANDS -- Washington State Parks are joining federal parks and refuges in offering free vehicle entry on Saturday, Sept. 26, to celebrate National Public Lands Day.

Day-use visitors will not need a Discover Pass to visit state parks.

Washington State Parks will have one more ‘free day’ in 2015: Wednesday, Nov. 11, in honor of Veterans Day.
