Residents can explore the outdoors for free as state and national parks waive entrance fees for Veterans Day weekend, Nov. 10-12.

Lake Sammamish, Squak Mountain and other state parks do not require a Discover Pass during the holiday weekend. The waiver also applies to lands run by the state Department of Fish and Wildlife and the state Department of Natural Resources, including Tiger Mountain State Forest.

The fee waiver encompasses all 398 national parks nationwide — including Washington’s Mount Rainier, North Cascades and Olympic national parks.

“We are grateful for the service and sacrifice of military members, past and present, and honored to tell their story at many of our national parks,” National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis said in a statement.
