Thanks to the Every Kid Outdoors Act that Congress passed earlier this year, every fourth grader in the country is now able to visit any national park for free. Fourth graders can download and print their pass online, which they can bring with them to the park and present for free admission.

Kids nowadays are spending much less time outdoors. It's no coincidence that they also face a shorter life expectancy. Countless studies have shown that access to the outdoors lowers heart rates and stress levels, boosts energy and immune system function, and reduces anxiety and depression. Downloading the Every Kid Outdoors pass is a quick and easy - not to mention free! - action that parents can take to help their kids benefit from the healing power of the outdoors.
