Every Kid in a Park launches free pass program for all 4th graders

USFWS-Canoe-AlaskaThe Every Kid in a Park program allows fourth graders (or the homeschool equivalent) to get a free pass for a year’s worth of entry to more than 2000 federally managed sites, including national parks, forests, wildlife refuges and marine sanctuaries.

The free Every Kid in a Park pass also allows for entry for up to three accompanying adults (for per-person fee areas) or the entire car (for per-vehicle fee areas), ensuring that the whole family gets to take advantage of this program and can spend time visiting some of America’s most beautiful places.

“Every Kid in a Park invites children of all backgrounds to discover their public lands and all they offer, including opportunities to be active and spend time with friends and family. As living classrooms, these outdoor places and historic sites also provide hands-on, real-world opportunities to develop critical skills and learn about the natural world.”
