The U.S National Park Service is celebrating the 25th anniversary of National Public Lands fee-free on Sept. 22.

Visitors who visit any federally managed lands will be allowed to enter the park free of charge. There are more than 400 parks from coast-to-coast eligible for free admission on Sept. 22. 

The fee-free designation does not affect fees for camping, reservation, tours or use of concessions.

Visitors who plan on spending time in the parks beyond Sept. 22 will need to pay the regular entrance fee for the remainder of their stay.

The Coronado National Forest will hold an event in the Sabino Canyon Recreation area.

Near the Sabino Canyon Visitor Center, the Sabino Canyon Volunteer Naturalists will host a Junior Ranger table with activities for young children. Arizona Game and Fish will be there with an educational display and information on Arizona Wildlife.

The next fee-free day will be November 11, in honor of Veterans Day.
