Every Kid in a Park Pass
Beginning September 1st, all kids in the fourth grade have access to their own Every Kid in a Park pass. This pass provides free access to national parks, national forests, national wildlife refuges, and more!
The Every Kid in a Park pass is good for the 2015-2016 school year, until August 31, 2016. It's easy to get one- just visit the Every Kid in a Park website, participate in a short activity, and dowload a voucher to exchange for a pass at any park that offers passes (at Lowell, passes are available at the Visitor Center and the Boott Cotton Mills Museum). Educators can visit the educator section to download a classroom activity and pass vouchers for the whole 4th grade class.
At Lowell National Historical Park, the Every Kid in a Park pass admits the 4th grade passholder, and up to three accompanying guests, into the Boott Cotton Mills Museum for free. (Note that the pass does not apply to boat tours)
