Hi everyone,

Many of us at the club have experienced and photographed our beautiful national parks and refuges. If you haven’t heard by now, the price of the lifetime “America the Beautiful- The National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Senior Pass” will increase from $10 to $80 on August 28.  If you do not have this lifetime pass, and will be 62 by August 27, I would recommend that you purchase one as it provides access to more than 2,000 recreation sites managed by 6 federal agencies. See https://www.nps.gov/planyourvisit/senior-pass-changes.htm for more information.

Passes are available at Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center (note: either a check or cash is accepted for purchases of passes).
