National Parks and Recreation Day

National Parks and Recreation Day

By Mary E. Hart
It’s July! The sun is shining (at least here in Massachusetts. Hope it is in your neck of the woods as well!) and it’s a long weekend for most, which makes it a perfect day to get out there and explore the great outdoors. And what better day to do so than National Parks and Recreation Day! 

No, that’s not a day to sit and watch Netflix or Hulu for Amy Poehler and friends on the “Parks and Recreation” series. Although I guess you could. It’s a great series, from what I’ve heard. Haven’t yet had a chance to watch it, but it’s on my to-watch list, which gets longer by the day. But we’d rather that you got outside, if you can, and go exploring our great nation’s parks.

Did you know that you can visit the national parks in the United States FOR FREE through an Access Pass for Americans with disabilities? You can find out more on the National Park Service page. All you have to do is scroll down to the “Access Pass” section three-quarters of the way down. There, you’ll find the following information:

  • The Access Pass is free for U.S. citizens or permanent residents with permanent disabilities
  • The Access Pass may be obtained in person at a federal recreation site or through the mail using this application form.
  • NOTE: There is a $10 fee to process the application, but the pass itself is free.

Please visit the National Park Service site for further information. They also offer a free annual pass for the U.S. Military. If you’re not an American with disabilities nor a current U.S. military member, you could purchase an annual pass for visits.

Now get out there and go exploring.
