Where the Money Goes
Simply put, the majority of proceeds from the sale of passes goes right back into maintaining and improving the trails, land and facilities you use most. In 2004, $4.9 million were generated from the Recreation Fees in the Southwestern Region.
By purchasing a pass, you're helping ensure healthy forests and a legacy of camping, picnicking, boating, hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, and motorized-use trails for generations to come.
That's easy: you do. We fund projects based on public feedback, which has told us that the priorities are:
Maintaining Restrooms and Facilities
Improve Safety and Security
How Can I Learn More?
As time allows, the Forest Offices produce an overview of how the Fee program benefits local forests, complete with the dollars raised and the projects it supported. This information will be posted as it becomes available.
