AUSTIN— In honor of both active and retired military, daily entrance fees at Texas State Parks will be waived for all visitors Sunday, Nov. 13.

“This is our way of giving thanks to 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. “We hope that Texans everywhere will make Texas State Parks part of their celebration this Veteran’s Day.”

Parks will be hosting guided hikes, bird walks and other programs throughout the day. Camping and special activity fees will still apply.
