FREE National Parks Pass for 5th Graders
If you are looking for something to do with the kids to get them out and explore then you are going to love the National Park Pass for 5th graders.
Fifth Graders learning in the United States can bring their families to national parks, national forests and grasslands, wildlife refuges and other Department of the Interior, U.S. Forest Service, and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers-managed public lands and waters for free!
Each year there is a pass made by the National Park service that allows 4th graders and their families to visit national parks for free. For the 2020-2021 school year the National Park service has changed things a bit since last years 4th graders missed out on using the 4th grade Free National Parks pass.
This year there is a new voucher that is just for 5th graders that is valid from October 28, 2020 through August 31, 2021.
What is great about the National park pass for 5th graders is that not only does the student get in for free, but the rest of the family too. If you visit a site that charges entrance fees per person, the national parks voucher admits all children under 16 and up to three adults for free.
