1998 Early Bird State Parks Passports will go on sale beginning Monday, December 1, at all Fish, Wildlife & Parks offices and selected license agents. Early Bird sales will continue through February 15, 1998. The passport admits one vehicle and its occupants into any state park fee area. Passports are not needed for access to fishing access sites and wildlife management areas. They are valid for one license year (March 1 to the last day of the following February), and are valid immediately upon purchase if affixed to the interior lower left of the windshield. The price of the Early Bird Passport is $16 for residents and nonresidents and $8 for each additional vehicle, if all passports are purchased at the same time. On November 7, the FWP Commission approved a fee increase for the upcoming license year. After February 15, the price will be $20 per vehicle for residents ($10 for each additional vehicle, if all passports are purchased at the same time), and $24 per vehicle for nonresidents ($12 for each additional vehicle, if all are purchased at the same time).
