Our national parks are in agreement: free is the best price! And if the mild weather holds, this might be an excellent weekend to take advantage of free admission at Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge and Fort Vancouver National Historic Site. Presdients' Day Weekend—Saturday, Feb. 15 through Monday, Feb. 17—is one of but a few times during the year when these two nearby gems waive the admission fee. Additional fee-free days in 2014 are as follows:
April 19-20: National Park Week
Aug. 25: National Park Service Birthday
Sept. 27: Natioanl Public Lands Day
Nov. 11: Veterans Day

While you're there, you might want to take a look at the many magnificent national parks within driving distance of Clark County—and start planning your next trip! In the meantime, you and your family can appreciate the local splendor.
