Get ready to go outdoors!

Starting this fall, every 4th-grader across the country will receive a family pass for one year's free admission to all of our national parks, monuments, forests, wildlife refuges, and waterways. It's part of the President's initiative to help kids take a break from their screens and go out and explore our amazing public lands.

Along with the passes, you'll get:

Resources to make it easy for families and schools to plan trips

Help with transportation costs for schools with the most need

Educational materials for teachers
