Our Vision

To foster the mind, body, and spirit of youth and families by inspiring a long-term appreciation of the Wyoming outdoors through education, interaction, and adventure.

WY Outside is an unincorporated affiliation of nonprofits and state and federal agencies working to encourage youth and families in Wyoming to spend more time outdoors.

Every Kid in a Park

In celebration of the National Park Service’s 100 year anniversary, the Wyoming Division of State Parks, Historic Sites and Trails is participating in the “Every Kid in a Park” campaign, a program that provides every fourth-grade student nationwide and their family free admission to more than 2,000 National Parks, as well as state parks and historic sites in the Cowboy State.

The Wyoming Division of State Parks, Historic Sites and Trails in partnership with the Wyoming Office of Tourism, Wyoming Department of Education and other state and federal partners have produced and distributed coloring books to Wyoming fourth graders. The Wyoming State Park passes are available at SPHST visitor centers, fee booths and headquarters at 2301 Central Avenue in Cheyenne, WY. The National Park passes are available at www.everykidinapark.gov. For more information check out the press release and Program Guidelines.
