National Parks Free Today
Written by Andrew-Rossi on August 25, 2017
If you’ve been looking for an excuse to take a trip to one of our local National Parks, today is that day.
It’s a Fee-Free Day at Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks and Big Horn Canyon National Recreation Area. Christy Fleming at Big Horn Canyon says the Park Service is opening its doors to the public for free for a special reason.
Normally it costs a minimum of $30 per vehicle to enter Yellowstone or Grand Teton, and $5 per day to visit Big Horn Canyon.
Fleming adds that today is an ideal day to visit because there will be two special presentations this evening by Dr. Ivy Merriot, who will share her current research on the astronomical possibilities embedded in the design of the twenty-eight spoked Medicine Wheel in the Big Horn Mountains. The presentations will be at 5 p.m. at the Lovell Visitor Center, and at 8 p.m. at Horseshoe Bend Amphitheatre.
