West Georgia schools are on spring break this week. Although most trips are already underway, I thought now is a good time to remind every parent of a fourth grader about a wonderful government program. It’s called Every Kid in a Park. This program gives free passes to be used in the national parks. The passes can be ordered by an individual and teachers may order for entire classrooms. I’m a lover of nature and of our national parks ( After college graduation, I worked as seasonal ranger at Fort Pulaski National Monument). So take advantage of this opportunity and begin planning for the summer by visiting http://www.everykidinapark.gov.
