5th Grade Discovery Pass

The Nevada State Parks 5th Grade Discovery Pass provides 5th graders with a free annual entrance permit to all Nevada State parks, historic sites and recreation areas.

Passes may be picked up from school district offices throughout Nevada and are good for the 5th Grader and everyone in the vehicle.




Junior Ranger Programs

Junior Ranger programs are a fun and popular way for youth to learn about and uniquely explore park lands, while instilling a sense of stewardship.

Children of all ages are invited to earn Junior Ranger badges by completing a free activity book during a visit to any or all of Nevada’s beautiful state parks. Some activities include: creating a sound map, interviewing a park ranger, identifying scat and animal tracks, and much more!

The activity book is available at each state park or can be downloaded here. The Junior Ranger program is a great way to discover a new state park or re-discover an old favorite while becoming a steward of Nevada’s state parks!
