Forest Service fee free day
The U.S. Forest Service will waive fees at hundreds of recreation sites across the country on Saturday, Sept. 24, in recognition of National Public Lands Day.
In our area locally on the Inyo National Forest day-use fees will be waived at South Tufa in the Mono Basin National Forest Scenic Area, Reds Meadow and Devils Postpile, and Schulman Grove in the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest. Fees regularly collected at these sites contribute significantly to improving facilities and vistor services in the specific area where the fees are collected.
Fees remain in place for camping and wilderness permit reservations.
