Get back to nature on a national scale and visit a National Park for FREE on Saturday, Sept. 24. All 392 National Parks and all other national public lands are admission-free for National Public Lands Day. The fee-free day for national parks, forests, trails, monuments and other public lands falls on the same day as the Smithsonian Museum Day, when hundreds of U.S. museums are also admission free.

If you love the outdoors, consider signing up or just show up for one of the volunteer projects at dozen of public lands sites on Saturday. Spend the morning helping clean up and restore our national natural treasures, then spend the afternoon just enjoying and exploring them.
