It's Up To Us

Because no matter who you are, no matter where you live, our parks, our monuments, our lands, our waters — these places are your birthright as Americans.

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA

Together, we can inspire the nation’s next generation of cultural and environmental stewards by

instilling them with curiosity about natural wonders,
furthering their understanding of historic events, and
fostering their appreciation for diverse cultural heritage.

Every Kid in a Park is a movement designed to give every fourth grader the opportunity to experience the living classroom of America’s national parks and historic sites. Between the ages of 9 and 11, kids are most open to learning about the world around them; yet, so many spend more time sitting in front of a screen than exploring environments that foster deeper learning and fulfillment. And most American families live in cities, without access to safe outdoor play areas. Beginning in the 2015 school year, these young Americans are eligible for a pass granting them—and their families—FREE entry to more than 2,000 federally managed lands and waters.
