Every Kid in a Park Program Continues in 2017
In addition to the fee-free days, the National Park Service is also continuing a program to offer free admission in national parks through the “Every Kid in a Park” program. In partnership with the National Park Foundation, 4th graders nationwide can apply for a free pass for themselves and their families to every national park service unit. 4th grade teachers can also apply for a special pass to take their students to a park.
All this means it’s time to start planning how you’ll #findyourpark this year!
