Just for Kids

Graphic: 4th grade pass.

Annual 4th Grade Pass is available to U.S. 4th graders (including home-schooled and free-choice learners 10 years of age). Honored nationwide!

The Forest Service is committed to connecting kids with nature and the outdoors by providing students, parents and teachers with youth-oriented information and resources related to natural resources and the environment.

We encourage more kids to go outdoors by having fun, being healthy and learning more about nature. This helps youth to create an awareness of the value of public lands, seek careers in natural resources and land management as well as enthusiastically participate in physical activities.
