Posted 6:10 AM 11/2/2012 : Hittin' the Trails 4 You: Free hiking in the Coronado National Forest next weekend
TUCSON - In celebration of Veterans Day, the USDA Forest Service, including the Coronado National Forest, will waive fees associated with many recreation sites or amenities on national forests nationwide November 10 through 12.
"The Forest Service waives fees every year to encourage more Americans from all walks of life to get outdoors and experience the wide array of recreation opportunities provided on our forests and grasslands," said Forest Service Chief Tom Tidwell. "We hope that these experiences on our lands will foster a lifelong appreciation and stewardship of precious natural resources."
Fees will be waived at many day-use sites in cooperation with other federal agencies under the Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act. Day-use fees will be waived at all standard amenity fee sites operated by the Forest Service. Concessionaire operated day-use sites may be included in the waiver if the permit holder wishes to participate.
Visitors to the Coronado National Forest are encouraged to contact the appropriate ranger district office to determine which recreation sites will have fees waived, and at which sites concessionaires will charge fees.
