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

For the third year, Wyo Parks is partnering with state and federal partners in celebration of the National Park Service 100th year anniversary. As part of this effort, Wyo Parks will sponsor and promote “Every Kid in a Park”, an initiative set forth by the White House.

The “Every Kid in a Park” program provides every 4th grader nationwide the opportunity to obtain a pass that grants the student and their family free admission to more than 2,000 federally managed lands including national parks, monuments, forests, wildlife refuges and more. 4th graders, as well as parents and educators, can get passes by visiting the program’s website at: www.everykidinapark.gov

As a complement to the federal program, Wyo Parks will honor the “Every Kid in a Park” passes through August 31, 2018. Passes are good for free entrance/day use at any Wyoming state parks, historic sites, or recreation areas.
