Free National Parks Pass for People with Disabilities

I've shared this before on my blog, but it's worth sharing again for those who may not know about it.

People with disabilities can get a free National Parks Pass. The Access Pass is a lifetime pass available to US citizens (or permanent resident), who have a permanent disability - regardless of age.

The pass can be used at National Parks, National Wildlife Refuges, and many National Forest Lands.

The pass admits the pass owner and any passengers traveling with them in a vehicle at per-vehicle fee areas, or the pass owner and 3 additional adults where per-person fees are charged.

The passes can be obtained, in person, at a Federal recreation site (please see what paperwork you'll need to bring with you) for no fee. If you request the pass by mail there is a $10 fee.

Another opportunity to obtain a free National Parks Pass is through the Every Kid in a Park initiative. Every child in 4th grade (including students who are homeschooled) can receive a free pass good for one year.

Here is the link for families to print out the pass for their 4th grader, and here is a link where educators can print passes for each of their students.
