Na­tional Parks Se­nior Pass price in­crease

Serve Daily - - NEWS - By Ed Helmick

If you are 62 or older and en­joy vis­it­ing our Na­tional Parks and For­est fee area you are en­ti­tled to pur­chase a life time an­nual pass at a bar­gain price that al­lows free ac­cess. If you don’t al­ready have a pass you should buy it be­fore Au­gust 28, 2019, af­ter that date the price of the se­nior pass will in­crease from $10 to $80. For se­niors on a fixed in­come, it is a sig­nif­i­cant in­crease. If you al­ready have a se­nior pass, it is a life­time pass and is grand­fa­thered in.

The life time se­nior pass is now called the Amer­ica the Beau­ti­ful-Na­tional Parks and Fed­eral Recre­ational Lands Se­nior Pass. My older pass, which is still valid, was called a Golden Age Pass­port. The pre-pur­chased pass pro­vides ac­cess to more than 2,000 sites man­aged by six fed­eral agen­cies. The Au­gust 28 price in­crease is the first since 1994.
