Free Access to Federal Lands and Waters for 4th Graders and Their Guests

Every Kid Outdoors Logo

Calling all fourth and fifth graders!*

Every Kid Outdoors allows students and their families to explore public lands for free! Fourth graders nationwide can visit Every Kid Outdoors to obtain a pass that provides free access to students and their families to over 2,000 federal lands and waters that provide opportunities to discover our nation’s wildlife, resources and history. The Every Kid Outdoors initiative fosters connections to parks, forests, seashores and more which aim to inspire the next generation of stewards to America’s most important places.

To get started you’ll need to get your pass by visiting the Every Kid Outdoors website and completing a short educational activity. You can then download and print out your pass. Where to begin exploring is up to you!

*Many 4th graders missed out on using their Every Kid Outdoors Annual 4th Grade Pass during the 2019-2020 school year. A new voucher is now available for 5th grade students for the rest of the school year!
