Every Kid in a Park Pass Expires August 2017

The 2016-2017 Every Kid in a Park program is designed to inspire the next generation to discover all that our nation’s public lands and waters have to offer, including opportunities to be active, spend time with friends and family, serve as living classrooms, to build critical skills, and discover our nation’s heritage.

The Every Kid in a Park Pass is valid through August 31, 2017 and grants free entry for fourth graders and three accompanying adults (or an entire car for drive-in parks) at more than 2,000 federally-managed sites.

Fourth graders can log onto the website and complete a fun educational activity in order to obtain and print your pass. You can also trade in your paper pass for an official card at participating federal sites nationwide. Educators and community leaders can use the website to access educational activities, field trip options, and the ability to print passes for your students.


Junior Ranger Program

Explore, Learn, and Protect as a Junior Ranger! Kids can pick up a Junior Ranger Activity Booklet at the Visitor Center, complete the activities in the museum and on the trail, and become official Junior Rangers at Pipestone National Monument.

The Junior Ranger Program is fun for the whole family. Explore the Circle Trail, learn about Native cultures of the Upper Midwest, watch pipemakers and quarriers continuing their ancient traditions, marvel at the petroglyphs, and develop an understanding and appreciation of this special place. Park Rangers at the Visitor Center are available to answer any questions.

Upon successful completion of the booklet, return it to a ranger at the visitor center and you will be awarded a Junior Ranger certificate and an official Junior Ranger badge.
