Los Padres National Forest to Waive Fees for National Get Outdoors Day

Los Padres National Forest has announced that Saturday, June 11, will be a fee-free day for all visitors in recognition of National Get Outdoors Day.

A National Forest Adventure Pass will not be required for visitors recreating in all areas of Los Padres except for the Santa Barbara Ranger District’s Lower Santa Ynez Recreation Area, where an Adventure Pass will still be required.

“National Get Outdoors Day provides an excellent opportunity for visitors and their families to experience the recreational activities available to them on the forest,” said Assistant Recreation Officer Jeff Bensen. “This is your invitation to explore Los Padres and create life-long memories.”

Visitors who inadvertently commit a Daily Adventure Pass June 11 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 their local Ranger Station for more information on current conditions.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
