1. Get Into US National Parks for Free for a Year
You can get into US National Parks for free for an entire year and all you need is a 4th grader! Children under 15 get into National Parks for free any time. But now, thanks to the President’s Every Kid in a Park initiative, 4th graders can bring their family along for free during the 2015 to 2016 school year.
A 4th Grader Could Be Your Ticket to the Park
Families who are interested will get a free annual pass. Details on how to get passes have not been released yet, but I’ll let you know when they are!
This is a great excuse to plan a family or school trip to incredible places like Yosemite, Yellowstone, and Mount Rushmore. So get the word out to your friends, relatives, neighbors, and local schools!
Explore the Beauty of Places Like Arches National Park, Utah, for Free!
Don’t Have a 4th Grader?
You can still get into US National Parks for free in 2015 on these dates:
- April 18 to 19 (National Park Week opening weekend)
- August 25 (National Park Service 100th anniversary!)
- September 26 (National Public Lands day)
- November 11 (Veterans Day)
