New York's parks office says it has an online deal Monday, cutting the price of its 3-year Empire Passport to $130.

The Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation, which oversees 180 parks, says the standard price is $165.

Valid from receipt through March 2018, the passport provides unlimited vehicle access to all state parks, nature centers, recreation areas, boat launch sites, arboretums and park preserves.

It also provides access to 55 forest preserve sites operated by the state Department of Environmental Conservation.

It will be available at http://www.nysparks.com

Separately, the DEC says that on Monday anyone buying a $50 camping gift card gets a bonus $25 card, one-year subscription to the New York State Conservationist magazine, and the New York Wildlife Viewing Guide.

It's available by calling 518-457-2500.
