More bucks for nature's beauty

April 02, 2006

Entrance fees are going up at 17 National Park Service sites, most for the first time since 1997. Some also raised prices for annual passes. Many increases are $5 or less, but at California's Death Valley and Sequoia & Kings Canyon parks, entrance fees have doubled. The fees help restore historical structures and protect resources, among other things. Here's where daily fees are rising:
