Free second Saturday Admission to Redwood State Parks in 2018
Get free admission to redwood state parks in Sonoma County and throughout California on the second Saturday of each month in 2018, as part of the 100th anniversary celebration of the Save the Redwoods League.
In Sonoma County, seven state parks are participating:
- Austin Creek State Recreation Area
- Fort Ross State Historic Park
- Jack London State Historic Park
- Kruse Rhododendron State Natural Reserve
The free passes are available online, and are good for day-use parking admission at the park of your choice on the specific second Saturday you select. There are only a limited number of passes available for each park, each month, and they are posted online a few weeks before each second Saturday.
The passes go quickly, so plan ahead. Free parking passes for Jan. 13, 2018 are already gone; passes for Feb. 10 will be available online starting a 8 a.m. on Monday, Jan. 15.
To get a pass, go to SaveTheRedwoods.org and click on “Free Second Saturdays at Redwood State Parks.” Follow the directions for registration, and choose the park for which you want a pass.
After you submit your registration form, you’ll receive an email link to download your pass. Print it out so that you can present it at the gate when you reach the park, and then display it on your windshield. Note: passes on smartphones or other devices won’t be accepted.
