Kellisa's Golden Access Passport for the National Parks got two new friends. The Golden Access Passport allows Kellisa and her family to enter any National Park Service managed site at no cost. It also entitles Kellisa and her family valuable discounts, like half off camping fees, tours, etc. Since receiving the Golden Access Passport at Grand Canyon National Park in 2006, it has been used many times.
Kellisa and Laurel both qualified for their own Disabled Discount Pass to California's State Parks. Like the Golden Access Passport, this pass is a lifetime benefit. The main perk is 50% discounts off entry and camping fees.
According to the California State Park's website, there are 118 State Parks, 9 State Recreation Areas, 8 State Forests, 5 State Historic Sites, 9 State Fish Hatcheries, 1 State Nature Reserve, 11 State Reserves, and 11 State Wildlife Areas in California.
The National Park Service manages an additional 28 sites in California, including 9 National Parks, 6 National Monuments, 3 National Historic Sites, 31 National Wildlife Refuges, 3 National Recreation Areas, and 1 National Seashore. California also has 19 National Forests managed by the US Forest Service.
I don't even know where to begin, but I see myself creating several checklists to start working towards in the near future.
