“Every Kid in a Park” Makes American Adventures Free and Easy.  This is a super cool way for 4th graders to celebrate the 100th birthday of our nations national parks. The nationwide program allows participants to obtain a pass that provides free access to all federally managed lands and waters – including national parks, forests, wildlife refuges and marine sanctuaries.Mount Rainier national park Free Access Card Fourth Graders

Here’s the scoop. To take advantage of the program go to  “Every Kid in a Park” website to obtain a pass. The pass is valid for the 2016 school year and grants free entry for fourth graders and three accompanying adults (or an entire car for drive-in parks) at more than 2,000 federally-managed sites.

Teddy Rooseveldt would be thrilled to see the celebrations planned for 100th birthday of the National Park Service being celebrated throughout 2017. President Obama announced the Every Kid in a Park initiative last year with a call to action for parents and grandparents to experience America’s unparalleled outdoors, rich history and culture with their children or grandchildren.Free Access National Parks Pass Fourth Graders
 
By introducing fourth graders to public lands in their backyards and beyond at an early age, Every Kid in a Park is part of a multi-pronged approach to inspire the next generation to discover all that our nation’s public lands and waters have to offer, including opportunities to be active, spend time with friends and family.
 
Fourth graders are invited to log onto www.everykidinapark.gov and complete an entertaining, educational activity in order to obtain and print their paper pass. Students may also trade in their paper pass for a more durable pass at participating federal sites nationwide.Fourth Graders Free Access Program

Parents visiting the new website will find additional links for more information on planning trips to nearby public lands and some of the most remarkable places in America. 

As an integral component of this effort, the National Park Foundation (NPF) – the congressionally chartered foundation of the National Park Service – will award Every Kid in a Park transportation grants, focusing on removing barriers for youth from underserved communities to get to their parks, public lands and waters. For more information, visit www.nationalparks.org.

The Every Kid in a Park program is designed to continue each year with the then-current group of fourth graders. After twelve years, every school-age child in America will have had an opportunity to visit their public land and waters for free, inspiring the next generation to be stewards of our nation’s shared natural and cultural heritage.

Make it happen.
