SANTA FE ― The Santa Fe National Forest will waive fees at many day-use recreation sites and amenities Monday, Jan. 16, to honor the legacy of civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr.
All Santa Fe National Forest offices will be closed on Monday, Jan. 16, in observance of Martin Luther King, Jr., Day. Forest offices will resume regular business hours Tuesday, Jan. 17.
Fees will be waived at Santa Fe National Forest sites that normally charge a day-use fee and campgrounds that are not on the National Recreation Reservation System. Since many recreation sites on the Santa Fe National Forest are closed for the winter, visitors are encouraged to contact the appropriate Ranger District Office to determine which sites are open and will waive fees.
Fees at all national forests and grasslands will be waived at many day-use sites, such as picnic grounds and developed trailheads, to encourage Americans to get outdoors and enjoy their public lands. The Forest Service waives fees in cooperation with other federal agencies under the Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act.
