Access Canada’s National Parks, Historic Sites & Marine Conservation For Free For 2017 To Celebrate Their 150th Anniversary
- Parks Canada are giving people access to all of their national parks, historic sites and marine conservation for free to celebrate the 150th anniversary of their confederation.
The Fine Print
- You only need to order one pass for your group or family if you are all travelling together. A 2017 Discovery Pass is valid for everyone arriving in the same vehicle at a national park, or arriving together at a marine conservation area or historic site.
- The Discovery Pass is only accepted at national historic sites which are operated by Parks Canada.
- Activities such as tours or parking that normally carry a separate fee may not be covered by the Discovery Pass.
- Camping fees are not included with the Discovery Pass
- Validity Period: January 1st 2017 to December 31st 2017.
- Display: The 2017 Discovery Pass must be hung from the rear view mirror of the vehicle facing forward or it can be placed on the front driver side dashboard facing up.
- Camping fees are not included.
You can view a full list of places to explore here. This has been available since December, but I thought this would serve as a useful reminder. When it comes to nature (and really anything) remember to leave a place better than you found it.
