If you have a 4th grader at home, here’s a nice holiday gift to keep the family entertained (and learning) during the upcoming Winter Break… free access to our nation’s natural and historical treasures that make up the national parks system! From sea to shining sea, our country is home to inspiring landscapes, vibrant waterways, and living history that all Americans can enjoy. And, with the “Every Kid in a Park” program, America’s 4th graders can visit our federal lands and waters for FREE! All 4th graders in the U.S. are eligible to receive a free Interagency Annual Pass and can bring their families with them! A number of sites are in the metro Atlanta area, and dozens more are within a few hours by car. With the free pass (good for their 4th grade year), kids can see protected animals, visit the woods or water, explore a park or recreational area, learn about our heritage at historical sites, and take an American outdoor adventure. Just follow these three easy steps: 1.) Fill out a short Adventure Diary on the Every Kid in a Park website. 2) Download and print your personalized voucher. (You can exchange your paper pass for a plastic pass at some locations.) 3) Plan your trip and go!
