Humana Senior Skip Day - Seniors are invited to come to Pinnacles National Park or any National Park Site on October 8th 2015 for a free pass that entitles them to lifetime entrance into the park.
Paicines, Ca. - On October 8th all seniors 62 and older are invited to visit any National Park Service site that sells interagency passes, including Pinnacle National Park. Humana, one of the proud National Park Service Centennial sponsors, and the National Park Service have teamed up to offer a "Senior Skip Day" on October 8, 2015. As a sponsor, Humana wants to invite all seniors to visit a National Park.
Humana will be purchasing the Interagency Senior Passes that are issued by NPS sites to visitors with vouchers on October 8, 2015. The NPS has been working with Humana to develop a voucher that seniors can print at home and exchange for an Interagency Senior Pass at NPS sites that currently issue the interagency passes. The voucher will be used in lieu of the $10 fee normally collected for a Senior Pass. Seniors must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident and 62 years of age or older.
For more information, check out the website and print your voucher at home. Then bring your voucher to the park and redeem it for a Senior pass good for free entrance to participating National Park Service sites for life.
