Thanks to the new "Every Kid in a Park" initiative, 4th graders across the United States have the opportunity to explore America's nature wonders and historic sites for FREE. This pass provides free access to national parks, national forests, national wildlife refuges, and more for 4th graders and their families! They can stay close to home or travel somewhere new for an unforgettable outing. The Every Kid in a Park pass is good for the 2015-16 school year, through Aug. 31, 2016. (Next year's 4th graders will be able to get their pass starting Sept. 1, 2016!) The Every Kid in a Park is a program of the U.S. Department of the Interior.
