V.I. National Park Announces “Fee Free Days” on Aug. 14,15

Virgin Islands National Park Superintendent Mark Hardgrove has announced that Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 14 and 15, have been declared “Fee Free Days” at Trunk Bay Beach, a popular tourist attraction. Trunk Bay is one of the most visited beaches on St. John and is home to an underwater trail. One is able to snorkel over the reef, and read the plaques that identify coral and fish along the trail.

The Secretary of the Department of the Interior has declared that in addition to Public Lands Day and Veterans Day, June 5 and 6 as well as Aug. 14 and 15 will be “Fee Free” Days. This will include national park sites, wildlife refuges and certain Bureau of Land Management sites. The intent of the declaration is to encourage people to enjoy and learn more about the stewardship of national parks and other federal lands.
V.I. National Park/Coral Reef National Monument staff invites the public to join them in celebrating our precious national parks. This is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy such national treasures free of charge.
