SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The complimentary passes to California state parks for Friday have been so popular that the majority of parks are out of the freebies.

Thirty-one of the state’s 49 parks are out of the passes.

KNTV reports (https://bit.ly/1NPbpZf) Wednesday that Save the Redwoods spokeswoman Jennifer Benito says that guests can still show up at any one of those 31 parks, but they’ll have to pay the entrance fees.

As of Wednesday, a total of 4,900 people had downloaded the passes.

The nonprofit decided last week to offer the free passes at 49 of the state’s redwood parks after being inspired by REI’s move to pay its employees to take Friday off and go outdoors instead of working.
