Forest service waives pass or fee requirements in observation of Get Outdoors Day

GOLETA --  Los Padres National Forest announced that Saturday, June 14, will be a “Fee Free” day for all visitors to the Forest in recognition of Get Outdoors Day. A National Forest Adventure Pass will not be required for visitors recreating in all areas of the Los Padres except for the Santa Barbara Ranger District’s Lower Santa Ynez Recreation Area, where an Adventure Pass will still be required.

“This is an exceptional opportunity for visitors to use this fee-free day to experience the recreational activities available to them on the Forest,” said Assistant Recreation Officer Jeff Bensen. “Get Outdoors Day is your invitation to embark on an adventure that will create life-long memories.”

This year’s “Fee Free” days are the Martin Luther King, Jr.’s holiday, Get Outdoors Day, National Public Lands Day, and the Veterans’ Day weekend (November 9-11).

 Visitors who inadvertently commit a Daily Adventure Pass June 14 can have it replaced free-of-charge. Visitors are reminded that even though the Adventure Pass fee will be waived, other fees such as campground, reservation and group site fees may still be applicable.

Visitors are encouraged to “Know Before You Go,” and to contact your local
