Kayakers at Collier Seminol How families with fourth graders can print a free national park pass


If you’re reading this on Florida Rambler, you probably love America’s national parks.

So help spread the word: Every fourth grade student in America can now print out a free pass to visit a national park with his or her family.

The Every Kid In A Park initiative is a way to celebrate the National Park Service’s 100th birthday in 2016. It was announced by President Obama earlier this year.

The pass provides free admission for the student’s entire family, or, if the park charges by the car-load, for everyone in the car. The pass covers U.S. national parks, forests, monuments, and wildlife refuges and is good until Aug. 31, 2016.

For parks that charge an entrance fee per person, the pass admits all children under 16 and up to three adults for free.

Instructions are here.
