Catherine Pegram

A loon license plate on your car will get a free ride into any state park or historic site this weekend. The annual promotion by the state is way to say thank you to drivers who spend a little extra money on the plates.That money helps support conservation programs through the Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife.All cars with loon plates are free to enter parks and sites both Saturday and Sunday.State officials say this year money from the license plates will replace picnic tables and signs and cover other repairs at state parks.
