Every Kid in a Park
Every Kid in a Park was created so fourth graders and their families could discover our country’s wildlife, resources, and history for free.
It was first announced by President Obama in early 2015 because American children spend less time outdoors than ever before, and this program wanted to address that problem.
Since the launch of Every Kid in a Park, hundreds of thousands of young people have had the chance to experience America’s parks and historic sites, many for the first time.
And in case you’re wondering (like I was) – fourth graders were chosen “because research shows that kids ages nine to 11 are beginning to learn about the world around them. They’re open to new ideas, and they are likely to connect to nature and our history.”
The program provides fourth grade students and their families free admission to all national parks and other federal lands. There are 5 in Minnesota.
