Nationwide the Forest Service will be waiving fees at hundreds of recreation sites on federal public lands on Saturday, Sept. 25, in celebration of National Public Lands Day.
On the Inyo National Forest day-use fees will be waived for all visitors to South Tufa in the Mono Basin National Forest Scenic Area, Schulman Grove in the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest, and Reds Meadow Valley. Fees collected at these sites contribute significantly to improving facilities and vistor services in the specific area where the fees are collected.
The national forests are America’s playgrounds that provide healthful outdoor recreation opportunities for millions of Americans every year. “We’re encouraging people to get outdoors and enjoy their public lands,” said Inyo National Forest Supervisor Jim Upchurch. “Our local public lands provide abundant recreational opportunities for people who like to walk, hike, horseback ride, view wildlife, photograph nature, or enjoy a variety of other outdoor activities. At South Tufa and Schulman Grove visitors have the great opportunity to learn about Mono Lake and the Bristlecone Pines, two inspiring treasures of the Inyo National Forest.”
Fees will remain in effect for overnight camping and wilderness permit reservations.-Press Release INF
