The Outdoors Empowered Network is proud to make our pledge to support the “Every Kid in a Park Campaign” announced today by the White House, an initiative to inspire the next generation of cultural and environmental stewards and make it easy for parents, teachers, and organizations to plan trips to more than 2000 parks and Federal land and water sites. The new campaign supports President Obama’s Every Kid in a Park initiative, which provides the Nation’s fourth graders, their teachers, and their families with free admission to national parks and other federal lands and waters.
Every Kid in a Park was launched by the White House as part of National Parks Week 2016 and celebrates the centennial of our national parks system. EveryKidinaPark.org, a new web portal supporting the campaign, will make it easy for parents and teachers to find resources to plan a visit to any national park and learn about the free Every Kid in a Park pass for free admission to the parks and other federal lands and waters to 4th graders.
We are proud to support Every Kid in a Park and its goal of expanding access to our national parks to young students across the country. The Outdoors Empowered Network is committed to lowering barriers to immersive experiences in nature through free access to gear libraries and wilderness leadership training for teachers and youth workers. It's critical to introduce youth to parks in culturally relevant ways that help them grow their relationship to this living planet we all share. We are making this pledge to ensure that young people and generations to come will value and protect our national parks and the natural resources and heritage they preserve.
