Calling all fourth graders


If you are planning a vacation this summer with a fourth grader in tow, you may be able to access a National Park free with your child. Thanks to a link from the Utica Public Library’s Facebook page, I discovered that the National Park Service is turning 100 years old this year, and is offering a free pass for current fourth graders and their families to enter National Park sites for free. The program “Every Kid in a Park” began last September, and runs until August 30th of 2016. After a fun online activity, the pass can be printed out and will admit children under 16 in the household and up to 3 adults. Of course it does say that not all the sites found will accept the pass, and to call first to find out. But there are many options, and more information is available here. Check out your area libraries’ facebook pages, too, you never know what you might discover…
