Legislation has established entrance fees, also called users fees, for many National Wildlife Refuges, National Parks, and other federal recreational lands. The cost to purchase an America the Beautiful - National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Senior Pass will go up on August 28, 2017 from $10 to $80. If you are age 62 or older you are eligible to purchase the card which is a lifetime card, so long as you don't lose it. You may want to buy one sooner rather than later. You can get more information at www.nps.gov.
