"Every Kid in A Park"

Posted: Updated:

This is pretty neat. Fourth graders and their families can get into an state or national park for free

Kids starting and currently in the fourth grade around the country can get into any national park for free. All they need is a membership card through a program.

"Every Kid In A Park" was put into place back in 2015 by President Obama as a way to help families and friends to form a connection and experience this amazing country we call home. 
Jeff LaRock Interpeter at the Lewis and Clark Interpertive Center here in Great Falls told me why this is geared toward fourth graders.
 

"Children who are about 10 years old are still setting habits they will have for the rest of their life. If they get used to the idea of experiancing what we have to offer on federal lands  we'er hoping they will be alittle bit more inclinded to make use if their lands"

In places like the Interpertive center, three adults are covered along with an unlimited number of kids.

There's so many ways kids can get this card, all of which are educational. Kids can also go to the us  Forest Service website to complete online activities.
