In celebration of the Silver State’s Sesquicentennial, and in conjunction with National Get Outdoors Day, residents and visitors are invited to “Discover Nevada State Parks” on Saturday, June 14. Park visitors will receive free day use admission and free fishing (no license required) at all of Nevada’s 23 State Parks. In addition, the first 150 vehicles at each park on June 14th will receive a complimentary deck of commemorative Nevada Heritage playing cards provided by Nevada’s State Historic Preservation Office and its partners.
This statewide event encourages Nevadans to explore the many exciting and affordable recreation opportunities right in their own “backyards.” State Parks is partnering with Nevada 150, www.nevada150.org, on several activities throughout the year, with June 14 as the largest involving all parks statewide.
“We are pleased to be part of the effort to connect and reconnect Nevadans with the state’s natural and cultural resources,” said State Parks Administrator Eric Johnson. “Nevada’s 23 state parks offer many recreational opportunities for residents and visitors to get outdoors and experience our state, especially fitting as we all celebrate 150 years of statehood.”
In honor of the State’s Sesquicentennial, Nevada State Parks will also be giving away two annual park passes per week during the four weeks leading up to “Discover Nevada State Parks” Day. The first round of entries will begin on Saturday, May 17. Please visit www.parks.nv.gov to enter, and follow Nevada State Parks on Facebook for more contest information.
