Washington state parks will offer free admission four times this year.
The first set of free days will be March 18-19 in honor of the park system's 99th birthday March 19. The other days will be June 9, Sept. 29 and Nov. 10-12.
On these days, the Discover Pass will not be required to visit a state park. The Discover Pass will be required to access lands managed by the state departments of Natural Resources and Fish and Wildlife on the free park days.
A Discover Pass can be purchased for $10 a day or $30 for the entire year.
