Flagstaff Area National Monuments will be joining national parks around the country as they waive entrance fees on Veterans Day in recognition of current and former service members.
“From everyone in the National Park Service, I extend gratitude to all who have served in the U.S. armed forces and defended the people, freedoms, and resources of this country,” said National Park Service (NPS) Director Jon Jarvis. “I invite everyone to take advantage of this opportunity and savor places that our veterans have kept safe for us.”
Visitors arriving at Walnut Canyon, Sunset Crater Volcano or Wupatki
National Monuments will be allowed to enter free of charge.
In addition, the Western National Parks Association (WNPA) will be giving a 15 percent discount on all sales items Nov. 11, at all monument bookstores. For more information about WNPA, visit www.wnpa.org.
