Starting Sept. 1, fourth graders nationwide can visit the new Every Kid in a Park website to obtain a pass that provides free access to students and their families to most federally managed lands and waters - including national parks, forests, grasslands, wildlife refuges and waters. The pass is valid for the 2015-2016 school year and grants free entry for fourth graders and three accompanying adults (or an entire car for drive-in parks). Anyone else under 16 is free of charge. Follow the program on social media at Twitter @everykidinapark, Facebook, Instagram and Youtube.
