U.S. Forest Service Offers Free Access June 8

usforestThe U.S. Forest Service is waiving its access fees on June 8 to encourage people to get outside and have fun in nature.

In Nebraska, that means that all the national grasslands and national forest land in the state will be open to the public for free that day.

Most of the federal Forest Service land in Nebraska is in the northwest corner of the state. There are two national forests, three national grasslands and a federal tree nursery in the state.

The Forest Service offers these free days four times a year.
