Yesterday I stopped by the Woodbridge office of the National Park Service to pick up my “America The Beautiful” season pass. Turns out I was the first person to stop by the local office to get one and hopefully the word will get out about this great opportunity. In support of our troops the National Park Service is offering a special free pass to use at any park maintained by the NPS for active duty military and their dependents for the next year.
In the Woodbridge area the passes are available at the NPS Regional office in Brook Center off of Old Bridge Road during the week between 9-3. This coming Saturday between 11-5 the passes will be available at the Occoquan Wildlife Refuge as well. You must present a valid military ID in order to pick up your pass. This is a great chance for you to spend time this summer exploring local national parks such as Great Falls, Occoquan Bay Wildlife Refuge and Prince William Forest Park.
Get out to enjoy our National Parks this summer and remember the special America the Beautiful Pass is free for military families.
