You can thank Obama for this one. Starting September of this year, the Every Kid in a Park Initiative will grant every fourth-grader in the nation will receive an “Every Kid in a Park” pass that is good for free admission to all of America’s federal lands and waters — for them and their families — for the entire year of 2015-2016.
Even the National Park Foundation is expanding its program to award transportation grants for kids to visit parks, lands, and waters. The President has also requested new funding in his FY 2016 Budget to support youth education programs and to support transportation for school outings to parks for students from low-income areas.
