Did you know that through August 31, 2016, 4th graders and their families are eligible to get a pass allowing them free access to nationals parks through the Every Kid in a Park program?
As a librarian, you can access the downloadable activity guides to use for library programming. Check out Discover the Forest for links to other ideas and activities. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service also has resources for kids. You can also access a downloadable tool kit and media kit to help promote the program. The tool kit has a poster just for libraries!
It may still be chilly in North Dakota, but now is the time to start thinking about planning summer vacations! You can use Find Your Park to locate national park sites in North Dakota.
You can promote the Every Kid in a Park program in conjunction with the State Park Passes available at public libraries in North Dakota. Through a partnership with the North Dakota Parks and Recreation Department, all North Dakota public libraries have received passes that patrons can check out to waive the entrance fees at North Dakota state parks. You don’t have to have a 4th grader to take advantage of the state park passes – they are available to all ages! You’ll find flyers and Facebook banners on the State Library Marketing page that you can use to promote this program.
