Mapleton youth wins Arbor Day tree poster contest

Emma Beach, a fourth-grader at Mapleton Elementary, recently won the Sweepstakes Award for the Utah Arbor Day Tree Poster Contest. 

r In the August 2017 issue of Serve Daily, we announced that the National Park Service would significantly increase entrance fees in 2018. As a result of more than 100,000 comments from the public and concerns from several lawmakers the initial proposed fee increase has been reconsidered. The new “modest” fee increase raises the prices of Utah’s National Park Entrance fees per vehicle effective June 1, 2018, as shown below.

Arches NP     $25 to $30

Bryce Canyon NP     $30 to $35

Canyonlands NP     $25 to $30

Capitol Reef NP     $15 to $20

Zion NP     $30 to $35

The price for the annual “America the Beautiful” pass and the Lifetime Senior Pass, which allows access to most National Parks and Monuments will continue to be $80, as proposed last summer.

Part of the justification for last year’s proposed fee increase was to address deferred maintenance issues in the national park system. Department of Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke has asked Congress to pass legislation that would use revenue from new energy development on federal land and water to address national park maintenance needs.
