Entrance to Washington state parks will be free two days in April, one of them a Saturday.
Visitors will not need to display a Discover Pass for daytime use of state parks April 4, a date picked because it was a spring Saturday. No pass will be needed again on April 22, a Wednesday that is Earth Day.
Entrance to recreation lands managed by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife and the Department of Natural Resources also is free those days.
Legislation that created the Discover Pass authorizes 12 free days a year. Other days a $30 annual pass or a $10 permit covering a single day are required.
