Never has there been a better time to visit a national park than this Saturday, September 25, when the National Park Service will waive park entrance fees. To commemorate National Public Lands Day, more than 100 parks that usually charge fees are opening their gates to celebrate the great outdoors. Many parks are also running special offers on services and recreation within their park boundaries.

To further support national parks and to help preserve them for future generations, the America's Great Outdoors Campaign is encouraging people to send a comment to the White House outlining what they would like to see on President Obama's conservation agenda. The members of the cabinet will present their recommendations to the President on November 15, so actions must be done quickly. Find more details here.
