There is free admission to Manitoba's provincial parks for the month of February. 

The province said it's part of an effort to get more people out enjoying the outdoors, in spite of the exceptionally cold winter.

Free interpretive programs at Birds Hill, Spruce Woods and the Whiteshell, among others, are available.
