Fourth Graders are the Coolest!

How Fourth Graders Can Get Into National Parks for Free.

It’s settled. Fourth-graders are officially the coolest kids in school.

They’re the beneficiaries of a federal program that grants free access to national parks, lands and waters.

Thanks to the Department of the Interior’s Every Kid in a Park program, started in 2015, fourth-graders and their families can get free entry into these public lands for a full year.

The year of free access aligns with the school year — Sept. 1 to Aug. 31. The passes can be requested and printed at

 Oklahoma has 3 designated national park areas:  the Oklahoma City National Memorial, the Washita Battlefield, and the Chickasaw National Recreation Area.

  Plan your trip to one of these sites, or maybe your den or family has a longer trip in mind next summer.  Don't forget to visit before you travel to a National park.
