Discover Pass Brings in More Revenue than Years Past

Posted: Updated:

OLYMPIA, Wash. - The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission says the Discover Pass has brought in nearly an additional $1 million in revenue than it did the year before. 

So far, the commission says sales in the program's second full year generated almost $16.7 million, compared to $15.7 million the first year.

The program was created to offset the loss of state funding through budget cuts. A $30 annual pass or $10 daily pass is required in motor vehicles accessing state parks and other state-managed recreation lands. 

Parks and Recreation says the state took in $32.4 million in the two-year budget cycle that ended June 30th. The majority went to state parks, with the rest going to the Department of Natural Resources and Department of Fish and Wildlife.
