SPRINGERVILLE – On September 1, 2015 the Obama Administration formally launched the Every Kid in a Park program.

Fourth graders nationwide can visit the Every Kid in a Park website to obtain a pass that provides free access to students and their families to all federally managed lands and waters – including national parks, forests, wildlife refuges and marine sanctuaries. 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) at more than 2,000 federally-managed sites. This program is designed to continue every year with the then-current group of fourth graders.

“Every Kid in the Park is a chance for fourth graders … to be outside and get to know the lands and waters that belong to them,” said Christy Goldfuss, Managing Director at the White House Council on Environmental Quality.

Fourth graders can log on the website at and complete a fun educational activity in order to obtain and print their paper pass. Students may also trade in their paper pass at participating federal sites, including all five ranger districts on the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forests.
