YORKTOWN, Va. – Several U.S. government agencies have announced an annual pass to active-duty service members and their dependents, granting free access to more than 2,000 national parks, wildlife refuges, national forests and other public lands.
Active duty service men and women can obtain the new military version of the “America the Beautiful” pass. The pass will be accepted at National Park Service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Bureau of Reclamation, Bureau of Land Management, U.S. Forest Service and U.S. Army Corps sites that charge entrance or standard amenity fees.
Military members and their dependents can pick up a pass at any national park or wildlife refuge that charges an entrance fee or other selected sites. Members must show a current, valid military ID card. The pass also is available to dependents of active duty personnel.
