Tell the National Park Service: Don't Increase Park Fees!
The Trump administration just proposed massive fee increases in 17 national parks -- increases that could see entrance fees jump from $25 to $70.
The administration claims this fee hike will help address the $11.3 billion maintenance backlog in national parks, but Interior Secretary Zinke estimates that the new fees could raise around $70 million annually. That’s just a tiny fraction of the maintenance backlog!
Send your message now: Tell the administration to work with Congress to come up with stable, sensible, long-term solutions to address the maintenance backlog -- not put the burden on park visitors.
Follow these steps to take action:
