Colorado fourth-graders get free access to national parks and forests

Colorado Jill

(Colorado) All fourth-grade students (or home-school equivalent) are invited on a year-long adventure in America's big backyard.

Fourth-graders are eligible for a free twelve-month pass offering complimentary entry to over 2,000 federal recreation sites in the United States and the U.S. territories.

The pass is courtesy of the "Every Kid Outdoors" program, an initiative to help children and their families explore the nation's fascinating history, stunning landscapes, and diverse wildlife.

Colorado has some of the most beautiful landscapes in the nation, with four national parks and thousands of acres of national forests for hiking, exploring, and enjoying.

All of these sites are free with the pass. Students can apply here.

The pass provides complimentary entry to the pass owner (student) and all other passengers in a private, non-commercial vehicle at sites that charge per vehicle. For areas with a per-person fee, the pass provides free admission to the student, all children under age 16, and up to three adults.

The possibilities are endless - start the adventure now.
