Free Admission to Texas State Parks Nov. 8 in Honor of Veterans Day

AUSTIN— In honor of both veterans and active military, daily entrance fees at Texas State Parks will be waived for all visitors on Sunday, Nov. 8.

“We are so appreciative of the service that veterans and active military personnel have dedicated to our country,” said Brent Leisure, director of the State Parks Division for the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. “This is our way to give thanks and we hope that everyone will make Texas State Parks part of their celebration.”

Parks statewide will be having guided hikes, bird walks and other programs going on throughout the day. For a full list of events, visit: http://tpwd.texas.gov/calendar . Camping and special activity fees will still apply.
