National Park Service offers free-fare day to celebrate 105th birthday
SALT LAKE CITY — The National Park Service is celebrating its 105th birthday by waiving all entrance fees to NPS sites on Wednesday.
Park officials said the entrance fee waiver for fee-free days does not cover amenity or user fees for activities such as camping, boat launches, transportation or special tours. Rangers encouraged visitors to check with their local parks for any restrictions due to weather, fire or COVID-19.
The National Park Service was officially established on August 25, 1916! 🦬🎂
For 105 years, the NPS has been entrusted with the care of national parks. Today, entrance fees are waived for everyone to come out to enjoy their parks!

This is the fourth of six free-fare days in 2021; the next will be on Sept. 25 for National Public Lands Day. The final free-fare day is on Nov. 11 for Veterans Day.
Utah has nine national parks, monuments and historic sites.
Happy 105th birthday, @nationalparkservice! The Organic Act established the National Park Service in 1916. Today, the National Park Service oversees 423 units compared to the original 37 it managed in 1916. What's your favorite National Park Service unit? #Birthday #TheOffice pic.twitter.com/z3Y43XWigv
