Here in Oklahoma there are only three listed: OKC National Memorial, Chickasaw National Recreation Area, and the Washita Battlefield. I called the OKC Memorial to see if the museum was free that week and was told it was not. But the memorial site is always free year-round anyway, so I am not sure what's up with that. Anyway, you may have more free national park services where you live. Worth a try for a free field trip!
