“As we navigate through the pandemic and transition back into schools, outdoor learning is more important than ever,” said Santa Fe Public Schools Superintendent Hilario “Larry” Chavez in a news release. “Providing the opportunity for students to learn and enjoy the outdoors not only in Santa Fe but across the U.S. is an amazing option for our fourth-grade students and their families.”

Pass holders can also get a free permit for their families to cut their own Christmas tree on the Santa Fe National Forest starting November 22. For more information, visit everykidoutdoors.gov.
