Every Kid in a Park

Summer is coming and I'm a big fan of getting outdoors (especially after a chilly Spring). If you are a 4th grader right now, it's not too late to see America's natural wonders & historic parks for free!

President Barack Obama created Every Kid in a Park so 4th graders and their families could discover our wildlife, resources, and history for free. This program is designed to encourage kids to, "Marvel at the St. Louis Arch, the Florida Keys, and the Frederick Douglass house. Listen to wolves howl. Walk in dinosaur tracks. Look up into the inky night sky, and reach for the stars!"


The Every Kid in a Park pass is good for the 2015-2016 school year. Current 3rd graders can get their park passes starting September 1, 2016.
