Free Admission This Weekend to All National Parks
April 22, 2017
This week is National Park Week which means admission is free to all 417 parks and cultural sites this weekend. The National Park System celebrated its 100th birthday last fall, and advocates for the parks are pressing Congress to pass a bill to start working down a massive maintenance backlog. Alan Spears with the nonprofit National Parks Conservation Association says the parks need to roll into their second century in the best shape possible.
