Grounding deeply needed!

Escape the Day

If you’ve been feeling a little off lately maybe a day of Grounding is deeply needed.

It’s so easy to get caught up in the day to day routine – so why not escape the day? This Sunday is your opportunity to do just that. I found this video posted by our National Parks to be so on point and it made me chuckle, so I had to share it with you.

With over 400 national parks to discover across the country, you can find a spot and an adventure to match your needs. Sometimes it’s just a walk on the grass or sitting in a rock that help clear your mind and bring you back to a state of peace.

So find your spot, pack your lunch and go explore this weekend.

  • August 25, 2019 (the National Park Service’s birthday)
  • September 28, 2019 (National Public Lands Day)

National Parks Free Days 2016

A new year brings hope for change and new found interests. National Parks makes it easy to explore and get out in nature with Fee-free days to make national parks accessible to more people.

The National Park Service turns 100 years old in 2016 and they want everyone to join the party! On 16 days in  2016, all National Park Service sites that charge an entrance fee will offer free admission to everyone.

 Mark your calendar for these entrance fee–free dates in 2016:

  • January 18: Martin Luther King Jr. Day
  • April 16 through 24: National Park Week
  • August 25 through 28: National Park Service Birthday
  • September 24: National Public Lands Day
  • November 11: Veterans Day

National parks are America’s Best Idea, and there are 409 available to everyone, every day. The fee-free days provide a great opportunity to visit a new place or an old favorite, especially one of the 127 national parks that normally charge an entrance fee. The others are free all of the time. Plan your visit and enjoy our country’s history and nature.The fee waiver includes entrance fees, commercial tour fees, and transportation entrance fees. Other fees such as reservation, camping, tours, concession and fees collected by third parties are not included unless stated otherwise.

Fee-free days make parks accessible to more people. However, national parks are always economical, with entrance fees that range from $3 to $30. In addition, any fourth grade student can get a free annual pass through the Every Kid in a Park program, and active duty military and citizens with a permanent disability can also get free passes. For more information about the variety of discounted passes available, please visit the America the Beautiful National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Pass page.
