The new “choose your date” option is available to customers who buy the pass online at www.Discover
Pass.wa.gov or in person from retailers who sell recreational licenses through the Washington Interactive Licensing Database — or WILD — system.
Retail vendor locations are listed on the state Department of Fish and Wildlife website at wdfw.wa.gov/licensing/vendors.
At the time of purchase, the buyer can activate the pass immediately or on any day within one year of the purchase date.
The new option was passed into law in 2012 to allow greater flexibility to outdoor recreation enthusiasts, including those who want to give the pass as a gift.
The Discover Pass, authorized by the Legislature and governor in 2011, is required on motor vehicles accessing state parks and other state-managed recreation lands.
It was adopted to support the operation of state recreation lands, including those managed by the state Parks and Recreation Commission, the state Department of Fish and Wildlife and the state Department of Natural Resources.
