Every Kid in a Park Initiative

In 2015, President Obama launched the "Every Kid in the Park" initiative, which invites all 4th graders across the county to complete an online activity, and receive a free annual entry pass to to more than 2,000 federal recreation areas across the country, including national parks. The initiative starts September 1st, 2015. For more information, please check out the Every Kid in a Park website.
