Big Bear, CA, January 16, 2016 – In honor of Martin Luther King Jr’s dedication and forward thinking the US Forest Service would like to extend an invitation to everyone on Monday, January 18, for this year’s first “Fee Free Day” on the national forests in Southern California. The National Forest Adventure Pass will not be required for visitors recreating in the San Bernardino, Angeles, Cleveland and Los Padres National Forests.
By waiving fees, The Forest Service is working to ensure as many visitors as possible have the opportunity to experience the great outdoors and take advantage of the many recreational activities America’s national forests and grasslands have to offer.
Visitors are reminded that even though the Adventure Pass fee will be waived this weekend, other fees such as campground, reservation and group site fees may still be applicable.
Visitors are encouraged to “Know Before You Go,” and to contact their local Ranger Station for more information on current conditions.
