Fourth grade students in McCreary County are invited to attend the National Park Service Centennial celebration and reveal of the new Big South Fork NRRA film, Generations, at 4:30 p.m. (ET) at McCreary Central High School on September 10, and then receive their Every Kid in a Park Pass. During the night’s special event, student representatives from each school will join National Park Service leadership on stage to accept the Every Kid in a Park passes on behalf of their classroom.
As part of President Obama’s commitment to protect our nation’s unique outdoor spaces and ensure that every American has the opportunity to visit and enjoy them, the Every Kid in a Park initiative allows fourth graders nationwide to go to www.everykidinapark.gov and obtain a pass for free entry for them and their families to more than 2,000 federally managed lands and waters nationwide for an entire year.
This event is free to attend and reservations are not required. McCreary Central High School is located at 400 Raider Way, Stearns, Kentucky. For directions or additional information, please call (423) 286-7275.
