Are you a fourth grader? Great!
You can see America’s amazing mountains, roaring rivers, wild animals, while camping, hiking, fishing, boating or doing so many fun things on national forests and grasslands.
All you have to do is get the Every Kid in a Park pass.
Ask an adult to help you go to www.everykidinapark.gov(link is external) and follow the instructions. You can print an Every Kid paper pass that is good until Aug. 31, 2017. And you don’t have to go alone. You can take your brothers and sisters and up to three adults. Or tell your teacher to help your entire class get a pass and plan a class trip outdoors.
There are so many things to see on a national forest or national grassland. There are 193 million acres of national forests and grasslands you can choose to visit. How big is that? As big as 250 football fields. Now, that’s big! That’s also means a lot of outdoor fun, and we hope you find out that it’s so much fun you will want to visit us even when you are no longer in the fourth grade.
When you get your pass, ask your parents to help find activities and locations by using our online visitor map. You can also find ideas for trips on Recreation.gov(link is external).
While you are visiting us don’t forget you can be a Junior Forest Ranger and Junior Snow Ranger.
After your visits to national forests and grasslands please write us a letter to tell us about your adventures:
