California State Parks offer free admission to veterans and military personnel on Veterans Day
Submitted By Gloria Sandoval
California State Parks honor the service of veterans, as well as active and reserve personnel, by offering free admission at 143 participating state parks on VeteranÕs Day, November 11.
ÒFree admission on VeteranÕs Day is a small token of gratitude California State Parks can bestow upon all active military personnel and veterans for their service. We are excited to host them among the amazing natural and cultural resources of our stateÕs parks,Ó said California State ParkÕs Director Lisa Mangat. Veterans, active duty and reserve military personnel must show a valid military ID in order to receive free admission.
AB 150 (D-Olsen), signed by Governor Edmund G. Brown, Jr. in 2013, authorizes California State Parks to offer veterans, active duty, and reserve military personnel from the United States Armed Forces and the National Guard of any state a reduced or free-day use at participating state parks.
