Bryce Canyon National Park will offer its annual "Fee Free Day" on Sept. 27 in observance of National Public Lands Day.

On that day, the National Park Service will join other public lands to waive entrance fees, including those from commercial tours.

National Public Lands Day began in 1994 with three federal agencies and 700 volunteers. Last year nearly 110,000 volunteers worked in 1,300 locations and in every state. Now, eight federal agencies and many state and local lands participate in this annual day of caring for shared lands.

The Bryce Canyon Lodge, visitors center, North Campground and Sunset Campground are still open. Ranger-led programs are offered during the day. A free shuttle is available to the park's most popular viewpoints. With the arrival of shorter days and cooler temperatures, aspens are changing color, so come prepared for autumn weather.
