{phx} seeing nature for free

June 18, 2009

It sucks that you have to pay at all to see nature, I mean, it’s nature! But I suppose it helps preserve those amazing places, it’s worth it — at the least the cost is generally pretty minimal. Most of the time it’s only $5 per person or sometimes even $5-6 per car. So what’s even better is the fact that for three weekends this summer, admission will be free to over 100 national parks and monuments all over the country — just in Arizona there are 16!

Free weekends: June 20-21, July 18-19, August 15-16.

Participating national parks + monuments
Casa Grande Ruins National Monument
Chiricahua National Monument
Glen Canyon National Recreation Area
Grand Canyon National Park
