In contrast to the popular shopping date Black Friday, the East Bay Regional Park District will celebrate Green Friday on Nov. 24.
On that day, all entrance fees will be waived at regional parks, including parking, dogs, horses, boat launching and fishing, as well as entrance to Ardenwood Historic Farm.
The fee waiver does not include state fees for fishing licenses and watercraft inspections or concessions, such as the Tilden Merry-Go-Round and Redwood Valley Railway steam train.
This is the ninth year that EBRPD is celebrating Green Friday to encourage the public to spend more time in nature.
