Great Outdoors Free on Black Friday

From the Seattle Times on "Green Friday":

Washington’s two most-visited national parks, Olympic and Mount Rainier, are joining to offer free entry on Nov. 27, the day after Thanksgiving, in celebration of the holiday and as a way to encourage healthy outdoor time.

“The day after Thanksgiving is a great time for fresh air and a little exercise,” Olympic National Park Superintendent Sarah Creachbaum said in an email. “Thanksgiving is a time-honored American tradition, and we invite families to create new traditions by enjoying a fee-free day at two of the Northwest’s premier national parks.”

As well, if you have a 4th grader and want a free Christmas tree, Colville National Forest has a deal for you.

All fourth graders are eligible to receive a pass that allows free access to federal lands and waters across the country for a full year. In support of this initiative, the Forest Service will make available a free Christmas tree permit to every interested fourth-grader with a 4th Grade Every Kid in the Park Pass or paper voucher. Christmas tree permits are available on a first-come, first served basis while supplies last.
