Every Kid in a Park
Posted by U.S. Department of Interior on April 11, 2016
Our country is full of dazzling landscapes where students can play and learn—and there’s an opportunity for us to make this experience a reality for more and more of our youth.
Last year, the Department of Interior launched an amazing new initiative called Every Kid in a Park.
Every Kid in a Park gives fourth graders and their families a free one-year pass to any of our nation’s public lands and waters.
Better yet, this all comes as we celebrate the National Park Service’s centennial year and look towards the next century of conservation.
And, as you know, we are focusing on environmental stewardship in April, so we want to give our network the opportunity to get involved in this effort.
Below is a list of the ways you can lend your support:
- Share information about Every Kid in a Park with youth and their families
- Help fourth graders get their park pass
- Partner with local parks to help engage more youth
- Promote the initiative online through digital outreach and social media
- Plan a trip or organize a field trip to visit a park and help connect with youth with the great outdoors
