Go See Any National Park Free
Have a child that is currently in 4th Grade? Love the sweet, refreshing smell of the great outdoors? Well then, you’re in luck! The U.S. Department of the Interior introduced the “Every Kid In A Park” to encourage young kids to get outside.
In a nutshell, every 4th grader is able to signup for a free pass to any National Park. Yes, that includes the whole family too! Simply register your family and get the pass. The pass will get your entire family into national parks for free, all year long! Log on to the site here to register and get your pass.
After doing a quick check, there are about 9 different parks within an hour of Rio Rancho that you could visit. You can check the Find Your Park map and see what’s closest. This is such a fantastic opportunity to explore and see why they call it, “The Land of Enchantment”.
