About the Program


For the fourth year, Wyo Parks is partnering with state and federal partners to support and promote the “Every Kid in a Park” program. This program provides every 4th grader nationwide the opportunity to obtain a pass that grants the student and their family free admission to more than 2,000 federally managed lands including national parks, monuments, forests, wildlife refuges and more. 4th graders, as well as parents and educators, can get passes by visiting the program’s website at: www.everykidinapark.gov

As a complement to the federal program, Wyo Parks will honor the “Every Kid in a Park” passes through August 31, 2019. Passes are good for free entrance/day use at any Wyoming state parks, historic sites, or recreation areas.


How to use the ‘Every Kid in a Park’ pass at Wyo Parks locations

When visiting a park or site, simply show the pass to staff at a fee booth or visitor center. At unmanned sites, please display the pass in the driver’s side of the vehicle dashboard.
