Press Release

Active Duty Military Offered Free Annual Pass to all BLM Public Lands

To show our appreciation for those who serve in the U.S. military, on May 19, Armed Forces Day, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) will begin issuing an annual pass that offers free access to all BLM-managed public lands for active duty military members and their dependents.

“Our active duty military members do so much to protect our country,” said Amy Lueders, BLM Nevada State Director. “This new pass is a way to thank them and their families for their service and their sacrifices.”

Active duty members of the Armed Forces can pick up their pass at any BLM field office, visitor center, or public contact station. Military members and their dependents must show a current, valid military identification card to obtain their pass. More

information is available at Recreation.gov.

This military version of the America the Beautiful National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Pass also permits free entrance to sites managed by the National Park Service, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Bureau of Reclamation, and the U.S. Forest Service. The pass is also available from these agencies.

“BLM public lands are America’s backyard and offer the widest range of recreation opportunities of any public land agency. This spectrum of traditional and new outdoor recreation activities contributes to the health and well-being of millions of Americans including members of the military,” Lueders said. “We are proud to recognize these brave men and women and hope that a visit to these lands will offer an opportunity to unwind, relax, rejuvenate, and just have fun with their families.”
