Every Kid Outdoors Program Offers Free Christmas Tree Permits to Fourth Graders


In a heartwarming initiative, Christmas Tree permits for the upcoming holiday season will be made available for free to fourth graders, including home-schooled learners aged 10, through the Every Kid Outdoors program. This unique opportunity not only grants access to federal lands and waters for exploration but also includes a free Christmas Tree permit to create cherished holiday memories.

The Every Kid Outdoors program, which is scheduled to run from September 1, 2023, to August 31, 2024, provides fourth graders and their families the chance to explore over 2,000 federal recreation sites across the United States. This initiative aims to encourage young adventurers to connect with the great outdoors and embrace the spirit of the holiday season.
To obtain your voucher for a free Christmas Tree permit, simply visit the official Every Kid Outdoors website at www.everykidoutdoors.gov. The process is straightforward and designed to ensure that young explorers have the opportunity to enjoy a festive tradition with their families.

Once you have your voucher, the next step is to acquire your Every Kid Outdoors (EKO) Pass at your local Forest Service Office. It is imperative to be accompanied by a parent or guardian during this step.

Mark your calendars! Christmas Tree permits will be available starting November 1st. Simply visit one of the Lassen National Forest Visitor Centers during regular business hours to receive your Christmas Tree permit for free. This unique opportunity promises to add an extra touch of magic to your holiday season and create lasting memories for families all across the country. Don’t miss out on the chance to embrace the joy of the season while connecting with the natural beauty of federal lands.
