Yellowstone National Park is offering free visitor admission on Saturday,
September 24, in honor of National Public Lands Day. All entrance fees for
the day, including commercial tour entrance fees and transportation
entrance fees, will be waived.
National Public Lands Day began in 1994 with three federal agencies and 700
volunteers. Now in its 18th year, National Public Lands Day is the
nation’s largest hands-on volunteer effort to improve and enhance America’s
public lands. In fact, last year more than 175,000 participants pitched
in to care for their parks at 2,000 events in all 50 states, the District
of Columbia and many U.S. territories.
While Yellowstone has already signed up all the volunteers needed for the
park’s National Public Lands Day project, volunteer opportunities remain at
several other sites in areas surrounding the park. For more information,
visit the National Public Lands Day website at

events will begin with “Greater Yellowstone Area.”
