The DNR is waiving entrance fees to all 75 Minnesota state parks and recreation areas today. Spokeswoman Rachel Hopper:
“Americans its found consume an average of 4,500 calories on Thanksgiving Day. So a nice brisk walk in one of our State Parks can help you burn off at least some of those calories.”
Hopper says if you’ve never been to a state park before, this is a great way to extend your holiday a day further and get outdoors with family and friends.
