PORTLAND – With the 2018-19 school year underway, it’s also time for all fourth graders and their families to claim their free Every Kid in a Park pass that allows free entry into all federal parks, forests, and recreation areas for a full year.
Fourth graders can print out a paper voucher for free entry into all federal lands by visiting the Every Kid in a Park website at www.everykidinapark.gov. Students and their families can also redeem their paper voucher for a plastic pass at any U.S. Forest Service office. For office locations, visit www.fs.usda.gov/r6/. The voucher and passes are valid for the entire school year, Sept. 1, 2018 – Aug. 31, 2019.
The Forest Service is partnering with schools and educators across Oregon and Washington to plan Every Kid in a Park events in local communities and distribute passes at back-to-school events this fall.
For more information on upcoming Every Kid in a Park events, contact forest service personnel.
