MURFREESBORO — Stones River National Battlefield, 3501 Old Nashville Highway, is asking all fourth-graders to visit the park this year as part of the Every Kid in a Park program.
“There’s so much to discover at Stones River National Battlefield, and we’re excited to welcome fourth-graders and their families throughout the year. We hope that our young visitors learn and have fun in the great outdoors and develop a lifelong connection to our nation’s history, land, water and wildlife,” said Park Ranger Jim Lewis.
The program gives fourth-grade students, and those accompanying them, free access to more than 2,000 public lands and waters nationwide for a year. Visit EveryKidinaPark.gov to download the pass and get more information.
The Every Kid in a Park pass — which features a new design for this year’s students — is valid for a full calendar year. The pass grants free entry for fourth-graders and up to three accompanying adults (or an entire car for drive-in parks) to most federally managed lands and waters, including national parks, forests, wildlife refuges and marine sanctuaries.
