Often just known as NPLD, National Public Lands Day was established in 1994 and is traditionally known as the nation’s largest single-day volunteer effort for public lands. NPLD celebrates the connection between people and green space in their community, inspires environmental stewardship, and encourages use of open space for education, recreation, and health benefits. Bandelier National Monument and other National Parks that normally charge entrance fees, will be free of charge on Saturday, September 26, 2020. The park store in Frijoles Canyon operated by Western National Parks Association, will offer a 15% discount on all purchases. However you choose to celebrate your public lands, be sure to RecreateResponsibly!
The next and last fee free day for 2020 will be on Veterans Day, November 11.
