Austin Adventures Celebrates 2016 National Parks Centennial with Free Travel for 4th Graders

To mark the centennial anniversary of the National Park Service, Austin Adventures will offer a program of 4th Graders Travel FREE in 2016. The program supports the “Every Kid in a Park” initiative created by the National Park Foundation in partnership with the National Park Service and the White House whereby fourth-grade students across the country have free access to National Parks throughout the 2015-2016 school year. As advocates of this program, award-winning National Parks trip specialist Austin Adventures is waiving trip fees for all fourth graders traveling on any of their National Park adventures in 2016, which represents a significant savings for a family.

Austin Adventures, based in Billings, Montana, has been a standout for more than 40 years for its commitment to showcasing the beauty and experiences of America’s National Parks, which celebrate a milestone in 2016. Austin’s one-of-a-kind, all-inclusive trips ensure that guests see and do the “best of” every National Park, including access to historic in-park lodges. This commitment is reinforced by Austin Adventure’s affiliation with Xanterra Parks & Resorts, the largest national and state park concessioner in the United States and a national leader in travel to the National Parks.

“At Austin Adventures, National Parks are what we do best,” Founder and President Dan Austin said. “Our homegrown guides have been leading small groups through America’s most pristine and protected lands for decades. Combine our legacy with that of Xanterra Parks & Resorts – which first hosted guests at the Grand Canyon in 1901 – and you can rest assured that when it comes to behind-the-scenes access and insider’s knowledge, our National Parks’ experience is simply unbeatable.”

I think that the free access to National Parks should be granted to more than just fourth graders. it still is a great program and I Hope it will be expanded. I love the parks included.
