Discover Pass signs going up

Employees of Washington State Parks and the Department of Natural
Resources (DNR) are in the field this week posting signs announcing that
the Discover Pass will soon be needed for vehicle access to state park
and recreation lands.

The Discover Pass, approved by the 2011 Legislature, is aimed at
providing revenue to preserve public recreational access to lands
managed by the Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission, the
state Department of Natural Resources and the Washington Department of
Fish and Wildlife. The pass provides access to 7 million acres of
recreation lands, including state parks, boat launches, heritage sites,
wildlife and natural areas, campgrounds, trails and trailheads.

The Discover Pass will be required beginning Friday, July 1.

Passes are on sale wherever fishing and hunting licenses are sold and
available online or by phone through the WDFW recreational licensing
system; also in-person at State Parks headquarters and region offices
and at parks as staff is available.

More information on the pass is available at www.discoverpass.wa.gov.
