TUCSON - Enjoy the beautiful spring weather in your backyard national park, with free admission into Saguaro National Park Monday, March 31: Cesar Chavez Day.
"Saguaro National Park has a rich history of Hispanic and Latino heritage and we honor Cesar Chavez and the contributions that he made to civil rights," according to Andy L. Fisher, Chief of Interpretation at Saguaro National Park. "Waiving fees for the day is one small way that we can celebrate with our community".
In addition to free entrance into the park, Western National Parks Association (WNPA) will offer a 15% discount on all book and gift sales to all visitors in both of Saguaro National Park's visitor centers on Monday.
Active duty members of the U.S. Military and their dependents are reminded that they may be issued a free America the Beautiful pass any day between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. at either visitor center. This pass will permit the pass owner, and up to 3 other adults traveling with them, entrance into all National Parks for 12 months. They must show a current, valid military identification card to qualify for the pass. Additional passes are available to anyone for purchase. Inquire inside either visitor center for additional information.
Please remember that the fee free day waives entrance fees only. Additional user fees, such as backcountry camping permit fees, still apply.
