Fourth-grade students may obtain a free Christmas tree permit through the “Every Kid In A Park Program.”

The program is an initiative to get kids and families into our national forests and parks. Fourth-grade students can go to the Every Kid In A Park website, complete some online activities, and print a voucher good for a special Fourth-Grade Pass which can be picked up at participating federal agency offices, including the Superior National Forest.

In addition to enabling fourth-graders to receive a pass that allows free access to federal lands, the pass (or the printed voucher) also allows fourth-graders to get a free permit for their family to harvest a Christmas tree on a national forest.
