2015 Free-Fee Days on Federal Public Lands

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), the Fish and Wildlife  Service (USFWS), the Forest Service (USFS) and the National Park Service (NPS) have announced Fee-Free days for 2015.  The  fee-free program is in cooperation with federal land management agencies under  the Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act.

Fees are an important part of managing public lands, as many recreation opportunities, including OHV recreation opportunities, may be lost  absent an opportunity to pay for them outside of the federal budget’s  appropriations process. However, the Fee-Free program is a way to thank the  millions of public lands visitors and to encourage more people to experience  the great outdoors.

The fee-free dates for 2015 and the participating agencies  for each date are shown below:
