Forest Service Honors Veterans
National Forest pays
homage to veterans past and present.
The U.S Forest Service is honoring our veterans by waiving
the Adventure Pass requirements on November 11th.
The Angeles National Forest, as well as the Cleveland,
Los Padres and San Bernardino
National Forest, will
take part in the “Fee Free” day which is open to all visitors.
Stanton Florea of the USDA Forest Services says the goal is
to show respect on Veterans Day.
“[It’s] in honor of our veterans and those that are
currently serving our country.”
This is one of three days that the Adventure Pass
fees are waived; the other two are National Trails Day in June and National
Public Lands Day in September.
Pass is only required in
areas that receive a high volume of visitors.
These areas make up about 25 percent of the four million acres of
National Forest in California and the fees collected help maintain all the
forest areas by providing supplies as well as training volunteers who make up the
majority of the forest service staff.
