Wednesday photo of the week: every kid in a park

The new federal program to provide a free National Parks pass* to every 4th grader in the country is called Every Kid in a Park. Visit everykidinapark.gov to sign your 4th grader up, and they can exchange their online printed pass for a nice card like Patrick is holding below. The passes are good for the student’s family as well, and last through September 2016. My son got his at Fort Vancouver National Historic Site, a quick visit for Portland families. You can follow Every Kid in a Park on Facebook, too!

* The passes are good for all federal public lands, not just National Park Service sites, such as the US Forest Service, and the national wildlife refuge system. Learn more about all the participating agencies here.
