WINONA, Kan. (AP) A Kansas commission has decided not to charge a $50 fee to visit a soon-to-open state park that includes a fragile landscape made up of chalky formations of spires and buttes.
The Wichita Eagle reports that scheduled tours of the 330-acre Little Jerusalem Badlands State Park in western Kansas will be free.
State Parks Director Linda Lanterman said at this months meeting of the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism Commission that the goal is to make it affordable for all.
