Free passes available to fourth-graders

NCW — All federal parks, national forests and recreation areas can be accessed for free to fourth-graders and their families who get a Every Kid in a Park pass.

Kids currently attending fourth grade can log onto everykidinapark.gov and complete a fun educational activity which will allow them to obtain and print their paper voucher. Students and their families may also visit any Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest office to exchange their paper voucher for a plastic pass.

Vouchers and passes are valid through Aug. 31, 2019.
