CARLSBAD, N.M. (AP) — Those looking to save some money Easter weekend and are near a national park may want to consider a trip.
The National Park Service is waiving admission fees this weekend as part of National Park Week.
The various parks are hosting special events such as Junior Ranger Day.
The Current-Argus reports that visitors to Carlsbad Caverns can come enjoy the caves and see Mexican free-tailed bats in the evening.
Park spokeswoman Valerie Gohlke says additional fees will be required for special ranger-guided tours.
Admission is also free at nearby Guadalupe Mountains National Park.
National Park Week runs through April 27.
