Every Kid in a Park: Free National Park Pass for 4th Grade Students

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.
