Every 4th grade student across the country is now able to experience their federal public lands and waters in person throughout the school year. Every year, beginning September 1, all kids in the fourth grade have access to their own pass that will provide free access to national parks across the country.
The 4th grade pass is for U.S. 4th graders including home-schooled and free-choice learners with a printed voucher from the Every Kid in a Park website are eligible for the pass.
