Gateway Welcomes 4th
Graders Through New
Program
Gateway National Recrea-
tion Area (Gateway) invites all
fourth grade students to visit
the park for free in the sum-
mer of 2016 as part of the White
House’s Every Kid in a Park
program. During this school
year, fourth grade students can
go to www.everykidinapark.gov
to complete an activity and ob-
tain a free annual entry pass to
more than 2,000 federal recre-
ation areas, including nation-
al parks. Starting today, this
pass can also be used to waive
parking fees at Gateway’s Sandy
Hook Unit and Jacob Riis Park
in Queens between Memorial
Day and Labor Day of 2016.
The goal of the Every Kid in
a Park program is to connect
fourth graders with the great
outdoors and inspire them to
become future environmen-
tal stewards, ready to preserve
and protect national parks and
other public lands for years to
come. The program is an im-
portant part of the National
Park Service’s centennial cel-
ebration in 2016, which en-
courages everyone to Find Your
Park.
To receive their free pass for
national parks, fourth grad-
ers can visit the Every Kid in a
Park website and play a game
to access their special Every Kid
in a Park pass. Fourth graders
and their families can then
use this pass for free entry
into national parks and other
federal public lands and wa-
ters across the country from
September 1, 2015 through
August 31, 2016. The website
also includes fun and engag-
ing learning activities aligned
to educational standards,
trip planning tools, safety
and packing tips and other
tips and other important and
helpful information for educa-
tors and parents.
