Trying to plan some activities for Thanksgiving break?
If you've got a 4th grader, I've got an interesting one for you!
Thanks to the Every Kid in a Park initiative, all 4th graders and their families will be invited to visit our country’s outdoor treasures and historic sites anytime they like during the 2015-2016 school year… free of charge! This includes all National Parks, Federal Land and Waters.
Part of the White House’s “Every Kid in the Park” initiative, this program is made possible by the National Park Service and National Park Foundation. The objective is to introduce kids to outdoor recreation. Students just need to sign up online and they will then get a voucher that grants entrance to the student and a carload of passengers to federal recreation areas for one year.
Beginning September 1st you can sign your child up for their own Every Kid in a Park pass. This pass will give you free access to national parks, national forests, national wildlife refuges, and more! The pass will be good for the 2015-2016 school year until August 31, 2016.
