The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), the Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), the Forest Service (USFS) and the National Park Service (NPS) have announced Fee-Free days for 2016. The fee-free program is in cooperation with federal land management agencies under the Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act.
Fees are an important part of managing public lands, as many recreation opportunities, including OHV recreation opportunities, may be lost absent an opportunity to pay for them outside of the federal budget’s appropriations process. However, the Fee-Free program is a way to thank the millions of public lands visitors and to encourage more people to experience the great outdoors.
