Friday Fave - Every Kid in a Park

Happy Friday Friends!

I hope you all had a fun and safe 4th of July!

Here's my "Friday Fave,"a series highlighting fun and interesting things (products, experiences and/or ideas) that I would recommend to others.

Here's what I am digging this week:

The Every Kid in a Park Program

The Every Kid in a Park Program is an interagency effort among the National Park Service, U.S. Forest Service, Army Corps of Engineers, Bureau of Land Management, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Bureau of Reclamation, and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to inspire fourth graders and their families could discover the wildlife, resources, and history in our United States National Park for free.

Every Kid in a Park invites children of all backgrounds to discover their public lands and all they offer, including opportunities to be active and spend time with friends and family. As living classrooms, these outdoor places and his- toric sites also provide hands-on, real-world opportunities to develop critical skills and learn about the natural world.


The Every Kid in a Park pass admits the fourth grader and any accompanying passengers in a private, non-commercial vehicle at per vehicle fee areas, or the pass owner and up to three accompanying adults at sites that charge per per- son. The pass grants access to all federal lands and waters.

We have taken advantage of this program on our family vacation to Michigan and most recently on our vacation to the Pacific Northwest.
