Saturday, Septemebr 23, is National Public Lands Day and to celebrate the National Park Service is waiving all entry fees. That means you can enter Acadia National Park for free.

There are over 400 National Parks in the U.S. taking part.

From the National Park Service:

National Public Lands Day is organized annually and led by the National Environmental Education Foundation, in partnership with the National Park Service and other federal agencies. Hundreds of thousands of volunteers roll up their sleeves to help restore and preserve public lands of all types and sizes—from iconic national parks and rivers to local urban green spaces and everything in between. National Public Lands Day is special because it provides all lovers of the environment—old and new—an opportunity to show our appreciation for these unique places.

The theme for this year—30 Years of Care and Community—celebrates the 30th year of National Public Lands Day. Join the celebration by volunteering at a national park site near you!

By the way, the last free admission day this year will be on Veterans Day, November 11.
