Second Year of Every Kid in a Park Pass Gives Access to Public Lands and Waters

The Obama Administration launched the second year of the Every Kid in a Park program to give fourth graders and their families free access to federal lands and waters nationwide for a full year.

Fourth graders can log onto the Every Kid website at and complete a fun educational activity in order to obtain and print their free pass, which allows access to national parks, forests, national wildlife refuges and marine sanctuaries. The pass is valid from September 1, 2016, through August 31, 2017, and grants free entry for fourth graders and up to three accompanying adults (or an entire non-commercial vehicle for drive-in parks) at more than 2,000 sites across the country.

“The Every Kid in a Park program is unlocking natural curiosity in children by encouraging them to explore our nation’s most spectacular places,” said U.S. Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell.
