Just for Kids
Every Kid Outdoors
Every Kid Outdoors is a nationwide call to action to inspire every young person across the country to visit our national parks, forests, public lands and waters. All fourth graders are eligible to receive a pass that allows free access to federal lands and waters across the country for a full school year!
Smokey Bear has been a member of our families since 1944. The purpose of the Smokey Program is to create and maintain public awareness, through the image of Smokey Bear, about the need to prevent unplanned, human-caused wildland fires.
Woodsy has been America 's environmental champion since 1970, and is most recognized for his wise request, "Give a hoot. Don't pollute." Caring, friendly, and wise, Woodsy Owl is a whimsical fellow and he's got his heart set on motivating kids to form healthy, lasting relationships with nature.
Coloring Pages and Activities
Forest Service Kids page - Smokey, Woodsy, Activities, Discover the Forest, Every Kid Outdoors information, coloring pages and more.
USDA'S Youth Page provides students, parents, and teachers with youth-geared information and resources related to agriculture.
We want youth to have a voice in the future of the Tonto National Forest. Getting involved in the Forest Plan revision process is a great way for you to tell us how you would like to see the Forest managed. One of the best ways to do this is by telling us what matters most to you!
Follow Rascal and Penny as they learn about Safety and Ethics when using their OHVs.
NOHVCC created Adventure Trail to communicate NOHVCC’s safe and responsible ethic to young kids, including the need to wear appropriate safety gear, stay on designated trails, be considerate of the environment and other messages. Adventure Trail consists of posters, coloring books, and a soon to be completed video game. You can download the pages individually from the galleries or you can request hard copies.
NOHVCC is a nonprofit organization of OHV recreation enthusiasts who develop and provide programs to improve and promote responsible OHV practices.
