ESCAPE THE MALL, HEAD TO THE WOODS WHERE NATURE IS CALLING: NORTHWEST TREK WILDLIFE PARK ADMITS KIDS FOR FREE THIS DECEMBER
Up to four children 12 and under will be admitted at no charge with each paying adult
EATONVILLE, Wash. – Holiday season happenings often leave people frazzled and looking for a break, and Northwest Trek Wildlife Park has the perfect plan. Take a little time out for nature and enjoy a very special treat: kids get in free throughout December.
Up to four children ages 12 and younger will be admitted free with each paying adult. Northwest Trek is open Fridays through Sundays and daily between Dec. 26 and Dec. 31.
Each visit includes a heated, 50-minute tram tour of the Free Roaming Area, where you can try to spot Willow, the 4-month-old moose calf, now growing taller and steadier every day alongside her mother Connie.
It’s a special time of year to see the park’s other moose, too, along with Roosevelt elk, American bison, bighorn sheep, mountain goats and deer in their heartier winter coats, venturing around a crisp meadow and forested hillsides.
Northwest Trek’s Main Gate is open from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the following dates in December:
The wildlife park closes 90 minutes after the departure of the day’s last tram tour.
In addition to the 435-acre Free Roaming Area, visitors can see bears, wolves, foxes, Canada lynx, bobcats, beavers, river otters, owls and other animals in natural exhibits along paved pathways that wind through the forest.
The kids get in free discount cannot be combined with any other promotions or discounts.
