BISMARCK (AP) - The 2013 annual vehicle permit for North Dakota state parks recognizes the 30th anniversary of the Fort Ransom State Park "Sodbuster Days" event.
The event is held twice a year to pay tribute to the state's pioneer ancestors and their lifestyle. It's put on by the Fort Ransom Sodbusters Association in cooperation with Fort Ransom State Park and the state Parks and Recreation Department.
The annual permit can be purchased at the Parks and Recreation Department in Bismarck or at any state park for $25. Senior citizens and disabled military veterans qualify for a discount. The pass allows daily entrance to any state park until May 1, 2014.
