National Parks Free for 4th- and 5th-grade students. The pandemic wreaked havoc on so much for one good thing to come out of is that last year’s fourth-graders may have been unable to make full use of their Every Kid Outdoors Annual Fourth Grade Pass. Translation: 4th- and 5th-grade students can have free access to our National Parks now through August 31, 2021. Go to the kid-friendly website Every Kid Outdoors and follow the instructions. For fifth-graders go to Access for 5th Graders

* NOTE: We strongly recommend that you check with the venue before heading out to the venue – because of the always-changing details and guidelines during the pandemic.
