As state parks and public libraries begin to reopen, Washington State Parks and the Washington State Library have expanded their Check Out Washington program in libraries across the state.

The program allows those with library cards to borrow a Discover Pass for one week, which allows them access to millions of acres of state parks and other state public lands.

The Discover Passes are only necessary for motor vehicles and aren’t needed if you’re wanting to access the parks by boat or non-motorized means.

There are two pass options: a $30 annual pass, good for one year from the date of purchase, or a $ 10 day pass.
