Show your appreciation to those who have served this Veterans Day by spending quality time together in the great outdoors. Here are some ideas:

  • Invite a veteran bird hunting to show your thanks. MassWildlife will be stocking pheasant stocked areas in advance of Veterans Day. Find pheasant stocked areas here.
  • Take a veteran fishing. Massachusetts offers many beautiful lakes, ponds, rivers, and streams where you can enjoy a day together on the water. You can also take advantage of the 60,000 rainbow trout recently stocked this fall. Find fall trout stocked waters here.
  • Enjoy free parking at Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) State Parks on Saturday, November 11, 2017 in honor of Veterans Day. Read the announcement and find state parks here.
  • Enjoy free admission at National Park Service Parks this Veterans Day weekend (November 11-12, 2017). Plan a trip to Adams National Historical Park or Cape Cod National Seashore. Learn more about NPS Free Entrance Days.
  • Visit a Wildlife Management Area together. Wildlife Lands are open to the public for walking, hiking, hunting, fishing, and wildlife viewing. Bring your binoculars, fishing pole, or nothing at all and just spend time together enjoying the fall colors. Find Wildlife Lands near you.
