Every Kid in a Park Initiative helps to engage and create supporters and advocates of nature’s environment and provide an appreciation of America’s history and culture. The initiative is an administration-wide effort among the National Park Service, Forest Service, Department of Education, Army Corps of Engineers, Bureau of Land Management, Fish and Wildlife Service, Bureau of Reclamation, and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The immediate goal is to provide an opportunity for every child across the country to experience America's public lands and waters in person throughout the 2015-2016 school year. 

Parents, teachers, families, and children, explore together the millions of acres of national parks, historic structures, cultural artifacts, ancient forests, snow-capped mountains, and clear blue lakes. To begin, access an Every Kid in a Park pass. The pass will give you free access to national parks, national forests, national wildlife refuges, and more!
