Every Kid in a Park

Yellowstone - Grand Prismatic2016 is a great year for the National Park Service. This year, the NPS is celebrating 100 years of protecting, promoting, and maintaining some of America’s most wonderful national treasures. 2016 is also a great year to be a fourth grader, because you can get a free annual park pass for you and your entire family!

The Every Kid in a Park program allows fourth graders, or children who are 10 years old, to participate in a quick and easy online activity which will then provide the child and their family free entrance to any of the national parks of protected areas managed by the NPS in the United States.

The program started in September of last year, and runs through August 30th of this year. This means that if you complete the program and earn your pass now, you won’t really have a year-long pass, but you do still have plenty of time to put that park pass to good use.

This is a great opportunity for fourth graders and their families, and you should definitely take advantage of it. The Every Kid in a Park program is more than just a free ticket into some of the most beautiful places in the United States, and the world for that matter. This program will help America’s children develop lasting and meaningful memories, demonstrating the importance and significance of nature, and promote an appreciation for the great outdoors.

These are all valuable lessons that will stick with this generation as they grow into adulthood, and they can then pass that same knowledge and appreciation on to future generations. National parks have been called one of America’s greatest ideas, and it’s important that they be cherished and valued as such.

So help the NPS celebrate its centennial this year! All fourth graders should be sure to take part in the Every Kid in a Park program, but even if you and your family can’t take advantage of the free 4th Grade Annual Pass, there are a number of free admission days this year, including an entire week of free entry to national parks!
