Seniors, who don’t run as fast as they used to, are running to snap up a great deal before the federal government jacks up the price of it by 700 percent.Last month, the agency said its new budget rules required the price to be $80, or the same level as that of an annual parks pass for adults.The hike is part of the National Park Service Centennial Act, which seeks to address infrastructure needs through raised fees.Congress approved the act in December under the Obama administration.Ever since the announcement, there’s been a run on the handful of park service outlets in the Bay Area that offer the pass — the visitor centers in the Presidio, at Fort Point, the Hyde Street Pier, the Marin Headlands and Point Reyes National Seashore.Crowley said the Lands End center stocked up on the passes so it wouldn’t run out before the price hike next month, as no park ranger wants to face a snarling senior in the wild.Seniors with the passes can avoid the $30-per-carload entry fee at parks like Yosemite, Sequoia-Kings Canyon, Grand Canyon and Yellowstone, and the $10-per-person entry fee at Muir Woods National Monument.

- Nearly 2 tons of seized ivory to be crushed in Central Park
By MARY ESCH, Associated Press - Thursday Aug 3, 2017
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Nearly two tons of trinkets, statues and jewelry crafted from the tusks of at least 100 slaughtered elephants are heading for a rock crusher in New York City's Central Park to demonstrate the state's commitment to smashing the illegal ivory trade.[...] state environmental officials, who are partnering with the Wildlife Conservation Society and Tiffany & Co. for Thursday's "Ivory Crush," say no price justifies slaughtering elephants for their tusks.Last year, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service instituted a near-total ban on the domestic commercial ivory trade and barred sales across state lines.Since August 2014, New York law has prohibited the sale, purchase, trade or distribution of anything made from elephant or mammoth ivory or rhinoceros horn, except in limited situations with state approval.The World Wildlife Fund says the illegal wildlife trade not only threatens animal populations, but also endangers national security by funding terrorist cells.
