Northwest Trek Wildlife Park admits kids for free this December

December 1, 2015

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.

NW Trek_40_logoEach 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.
