Every Kid in a Park is a federal government effort to get every fourth grader in the nation into public lands and waters during the school year. Come experience our special ocean, coastal, and Great Lakes places — all NOAA public spaces and visitor centers offer free admission!
At NOAA's National Ocean Service, we translate science, tools, and services into action to address threats to coastal areas such as climate change, population growth, port congestion, and contaminants in the environment—all working towards healthy coasts and healthy economies.
