If you’re 62 or older, are interested in going to any of our country’s national parks, and you don’t have a national parks pass, you may want to act soon.
The US Congress just passed the Centennial Legislation P.L. 114-289. This new law brought changes to the National Parks System, including an 800% increase in the price of the America the Beautiful – The National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Senior Pass. From now until August 27th, the Senior Pass will remain at $10 but on August 28th, the cost will jump to $80. This pass will get you into every national park for life.
So many passes have been sold that thousands of orders remain on back order. If you place your order before August 27th, your order will be honored for the $10 price. However, it may take several months before you receive your pass.
If you have additional questions about the senior park pass and why the price is raising, you can visit the National Park Services website for more information.
Passes can be ordered online or by printing out a paper application but there will be an extra $10 fee for processing. Passes can be bought at any National Parks or at Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge (although passes are not necessary to access Ottawa NWR).
