PROPOSED FEE AT NATIONAL PARKS: YOU CAN WEIGH IN

PROPOSED FEE AT NATIONAL PARKS: YOU CAN WEIGH IN

THIS IS A FORWARDED PSA FROM THE WINTER WILDLANDS ALLIANCE THAT WE THOUGHT WE WOULD SHARE.

Dear winter recreation enthusiast ( I would add, all recreation enthusiasts),

The National Park Service announced recently that it is considering increasing entrance fees to $70 at 17 of its most popular parks - Acadia, Arches, Bryce Canyon, Canyonlands, Denali, Glacier, Grand Canyon, Grand Teton, Joshua Tree, Mount Rainier, Rocky Mountain, Olympic, Sequoia and Kings Canyon, Shenandoah, Yellowstone, Yosemite, and Zion. This increase would double, and in some cases triple, current entrance fees.You have until November 23 to weigh in on this proposal.

The Park Service is proposing this fee increase, which is projected to generate $68 million, in order to address an $11 billion maintenance backlog. We accept that fees increases are appropriate or necessary in some limited circumstances but we cannot and should not address a multi-billion-dollar maintenance backlog on the backs of Park visitors. This fee increase strikes us as unreasonably high, particularly when proposed in conjunction with overall Department of Interior budget cuts to the tune of $1.5 billion, including a $380 million cut to the Park Service budget.  

The comment period on the proposed fee hike ends onNovember 23. Please, take a minute to let the Park Service know that you believe National Parks should remail accessible - and affordable - for all. We've made it easy for you to send a comment directly to the Park Service - just click here!

Thanks,

 

Hilary Eisen

Policy Director
