AL - State Park Visitors Can Now Donate via 'Dirt Pass'

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Promoters of Alabama state parks are hoping residents make donations through the new "Dirt Pass" program. The Montgomery Advertiser reports ( that park-goers and trail users can purchase a Dirt Pass and sport a rubber wristband that acts as a donation toward the improvement and management of the state's trail systems.

The Dirt Pass acts as a voluntary way for park visitors to fund revitalization projects and can be purchased at Cheaha, Chewacla, DeSoto, Frank Jackson, Gulf, Lake Guntersville, Lake Lurleen, Monte Sano, Oak Mountain, and Wind Creek parks.

The Dirt Pass, at an annual cost of $35, identifies the wearer as a Parks Trails Partner and supporter of the Alabama State Parks and trails program. The cost has been discounted to $25 for this year only.
