William Howard Taft National Historic Site will celebrate President's Day on February 15, 2016 beginning at 9:00 a.m. by offering Junior Ranger activities and presidential trivia activities that focus on William Howard Taft, Ohio Presidents, and Presidential History. As part of our National Park Service Centennial, visitors of all ages will be rewarded with Junior Ranger badges and other small prizes for participating in activities that focus on William Howard Taft and our U.S. Presidents. A guided tour of the birthplace and boyhood home of our 27th President and 10th Chief Justice of the United States will be available by park rangers every thirty minutes.
We offer special experiences for kids including the opportunity for fourth graders and their families to obtain a pass that provides free access to all national parks. "There's a lot to discover here, and we're excited to welcome fourth graders and their families on President's Day and every day to William Howard Taft National Historic Site to learn about presidential history. We invite fourth graders in Cincinnati and nationwide to visit the Every Kid in a Park website to obtain a pass that provides free access to students and their families to all federally managed lands and waters –including national parks, forests and wildlife refuges. The pass is valid through August 31, 2016 and grants free entry for fourth graders and three accompanying adults (or an entire car for drive-in parks) at more than 409 national parks and 2,000 federally-managed sites," said Superintendent Brenda Waters.
Fourth graders can log onto the website www.everykidinapark.gov and complete a fun educational activity in order to obtain and print your pass. They can also trade in their paper pass for an official Every Kid in a Park card at William Howard Taft National Historic Site. Parents can also find additional links for more information on planning trips to nearby public lands on the Every Kid in a Park website.
