The federal government is giving annual passes to fourth graders and their families, an effort to get kids into the national park system to experience the outdoors and learn a little history and culture.
The program includes Mount Rainier and Olympic, the two largest national parks in Washington. To find other parks in Washington, visit: parks.state.wa.us/
To get your free pass, go to everykidinapark.gov and have your fourth grader answer a few fun questions about outdoor adventures. After that, you’ll get a paper pass that you can print out.
