State Parks to honor “Every Kid in a Park” pass
Every fourth-grader in Indiana can visit both a National Park and an Indiana State Park for free this year.
“Every Kid in a Park” is an initiative established by the federal government and supported by a variety of partners. It allows fourth-graders to download a pass from everykidinapark.gov for free admission for them and their families to more than 2,000 federally managed lands and waters nationwide – including national parks, national forests and marine sanctuaries – for a full year.
Current fourth-graders can download and use their fourth-grade passes through Aug. 31, 2016, and current third-graders can get their fourth-grade passes starting Sept. 1, 2016.
Indiana State Parks will honor these fourth-grade passes in 2016 as a way to celebrate their 100th anniversary this year, which coincides with the National Park Service Centennial.
