Shoshone National Forest is pleased to continue the Every Kid Outdoors initiative, which is a nationwide program to help educate the next generation of conservationists. All fourth graders are eligible to receive a fourth-grade pass that allows free access to federal lands and waters across the country for a full year. In support of this initiative, every fourth grader who presents a fourth-grade pass or paper voucher at any Shoshone National Forest district office will receive a permit for a free Christmas tree. To learn more about Every Kid Outdoors initiative, go to https://everykidoutdoors.gov/index.htm.
