Angeles National Forest Offers ‘Fee Free’ Saturday

The Angeles National Forest will offer a “Fee Free” day on Saturday (Sept. 28) and three showings of the documentary,  Green Fire: Aldo Leopold and a Land Ethic for Our Time, as part of National Public Lands Day.

This special day is an annual event in which volunteers organize and work to improve the  nation’s forests, parks and other public areas. The normally required National Adventure Pass for daytime activities such as hiking and fishing will be waived as part of the celebration.

Green Fire, an Emmy-winning documentary about a great conservationist, will air at the San Gabriel Canyon Gateway Center, 1960 N. San Gabriel Canyon Road, Azusa. The film will be shown at 9 a.m., noon, and 3 p.m.

“Fee Free” days are observed by the Forest Service four times each year. This year, they include Martin Luther King Jr. Day (Jan. 21), National Get Outdoors Day (June 8), and Veterans Day weekend (Nov. 9-11). Visitors who inadvertently use a Daily Adventure Pass this weekend can have it replaced free of charge. Though the Adventure Pass fee will be waived, campground, reservation, group-site, and concession fees may still be in effect.
