We love visiting the beautiful National Parks in our area and I am so excited to see that the National Parks Foundation is offering a free National Parks pass to all 4th graders and their families for the 2015/2016 school year as a part of the Every Kid in a Park initiative.

I grew up in Utah where we had some of the most beautiful National Parks within a day’s drive, including Zion, Bryce and Arches.  It’s amazing to me that you can drive a few short hours and find some of the most strikingly different landscapes.   The main goal of the Every Kid in a Park initiative is to get 4th grade students and their families outside and able to enjoy the nature that is found in the mountains, forest, and lakes within our National Parks. Every Kid in a Park

Our favorite National Park to visit is Zion National Park.  We live a couple of hours away and our kids beg us to drive up as often as we can.  You can read my tips for Visiting Zion National Park with Kids.

To receive your free National Park Pass, visit Every Kid in a Park and scroll to the bottom.  You must have a 4th grade student and teachers of 4th grade students can print out passes for their entire class. The Every Kid in a Park pass is good for the 2015-2016 school year, until August 31, 2016.

I love that the Every Kid in a Park initiative is encouraging families to get out and enjoy the beauty of our country.  I’m already planning several places we could visit with our pass this year.  My kids have never been to Bryce Canyon, which is such a beautiful park.  I haven’t been since I was a teenager so I think that will be our first park to visit with our free pass.
