Got a 4th Grader? Get a Free National Park Pass for the Family

In advance of the National Park Service’s 100th anniversary, the organization is giving all 4th graders and their families free admission for a year to all national parks.

National Park Service's 100th anniversary

Announced by President Obama earlier this year, the Every Kid in a Park initiative was formed to help get children to experience the great outdoors and our national parks.

As part of it, all fourth graders in America are entitled to a free Every Kid in a Park pass that grants FREE admission for one’s family (or an entire car-full at locaations that charge by the car and not by person) to all U.S. national parks, forests, monuments, and wildlife refuges.

The pass is valid for an entire year, starting September 1, 2015, and lasting through August 31, 2016. It’s the equivalent to the National Park Service America the Beautiful annual pass, which costs $80.
