4th graders and their families can visit national parks for free!

YosemiteValley12Who doesn’t like the serene landscape of Glacier National Park? Or the stateliness of the Lincoln Memorial? What would you say if you could see them all free for a year?! Well if you are a 4th grader, or in a family with a 4th grader, you can! “To help engage and create our next generation of park visitors, supporters and advocates, the White House, in partnership with the Federal Land Management agencies, launched the Every Kid in a Park initiative”

Beginning September 1st, all kids in the fourth grade will have access to their own Every Kid in a Park pass at www.everykidinapark.gov. This pass provides free access to national parks, national forests, national wildlife refuges, and more! The Every Kid in a Park pass is good for the 2015-2016 school year, until August 31, 2016. Information on obtaining the pass is available by visiting www.everykidinapark.gov.

Educators: You can generate passes for your students too! Visit the educator section on the website to learn more.
