Yosemite National Park to Celebrate National Public Lands Day: Park Entrance Fees Waived for the Day

On Saturday, September 25, 2010 Yosemite National Park will celebrate National Public Lands Day. In commemoration of this special day, the park will waive park entrance fees for all park visitors.

National Public Lands Day is the nation’s largest hands-on volunteer effort to improve and enhance the public lands American’s enjoy. In 2009, 150,000 volunteers built trails and bridges, and removed trash and invasive plants on public lands across the country.

Yosemite National Park’s major emphasis for the day will be the Yosemite Facelift. This volunteer effort begins Wednesday, September 22, and continues through Sunday, September 26. Last year, this massive cleanup effort yielded over 60,000 pounds of trash collected throughout the park. Over 1,200 volunteers donated 16,488 hours to the effort. Additionally, more than 100 miles of roadway were cleaned, as well as over 120 miles of trails. For more information on the Yosemite Facelift, please visit http://www.yosemiteclimbing.org.

Fees being waived for National Public Lands Day include the park entrance
only. All other fees associated with camping, lodging, or activities
within the park are not waived. The fee waiver is good for National Public
Lands Day only.

Other federal agencies participating in National Public Lands Day include
the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Bureau of Land Management, the
Bureau of Reclamation, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and the U.S.
Forest Service. (K. Cobb, 9/16/2010)
