On Monday, March 19, Washington State Parks will celebrate their 105th birthday with a free park day. Visit any Washington State Parks that day without needing a Discover Pass.

In addition to March 19, there will be nine more free days in 2018:

April 14 — Spring day;

April 22 — Earth Day;

June 2 — National Trails Day;

June 9 — National Get Outdoors Day;

June 10 — Fishing Day;

Aug. 25 — National Park Service 102nd Birthday;

Sept. 22 — National Public Lands Day;

Nov. 11 — Veterans Day; and

Nov. 23 — Autumn day.

State Parks free days are in keeping with the legislation that created the Discover Pass—a $30 annual or $10 one-day permit required on lands managed by Washington State Parks and the Washington departments of Natural Resources and Fish & Wildlife. The Discover Pass legislation provided that State Parks could designate up to 12 free days each year when the pass would not be required to visit state parks. The Discover Pass is still required to access lands managed by WDFW and DNR on these days.

More information about the Discover Pass is available at
