The U.S. Forest Service and the National Park Service are celebrating Veterans Day by waiving fees at day-use recreation sites and national parks, respectively.

The Forest Service will waive fees at most of its day-use sites Saturday (November 8) through Tuesday (November 11), which is Veterans Day. Prospective visitors can go to to see whether the site they're planning to visit charges a fee.

“We hope that this time will serve as a way for our veterans and other visitors to find our national forests and grasslands as a year-round respite, a place where they can take time out for themselves," Forest Service Chief Tom Tidwell said in a statement.

Not to be outdone, the Park Service is waiving entrance fees at most national parks and monuments, but only on Tuesday (November 11).

Both organizations have announced their fee-free days for 2015 as well. You can find that information here and here.
