Drastic Reduction in Free Entrance Days

The National Park Service has announced that it will offer just four free entrance days in 2018, which is a drastic cut from the sixteen free days offered in 2017. The free entrance days will be Martin Luther King Jr. Day (January 15), the first day of National Park Week (April 21), National Public Lands Day (September 22) and Veterans Day (November 11.). No explanation was given for the change, but it can't be a coincidence that this cut comes on the heels of the plan to sharply increase entrance fees.
