Governor Judy Martz joined a nationwide movement to waive fees at Montana State Parks over the Veterans Day Weekend. "Montana is joining in a nationwide move to make it easier for Americans to draw strength from the natural wonders and beauty around them during this time of tragedy and uncertainty," said Gov. Martz.

Martz said Montanans are blessed with many places to turn in times of need. Some of the most outstanding are preserved as Montana State Parks. U.S. Secretary of the Interior Gayle Norton announced early in October that all entrance fees to national park areas managed by the National Park Service would be waived on Veterans Day Weekend so Americans can seek inspiration from the nation's parks, monuments and memorials.
