Northwest Trek hosts family fun on Hoot ’N’ Howl evenings

Guests are invited to put on a costume and explore Northwest Trek Wildlife Park at twilight during Hoot ‘n’ Howl weekends in October. There will be nocturnal animals, games, spookiness and lots of candy.  

Guests can walk Northwest Trek’s lit-up animal paths and try to find all eight trick-or-treat stations, play games such as pumpkin checkers and tic tac toe, and snap spooky photos.

Visitors can also meet the barn owl, raccoons or beavers and their keepers, or come inside the Cheney Discovery Center and learn about different animals such as a gopher snake, Pacific tree frog or rough-skinned newt, or join naturalists inside the Baker Cabin to learn about the wild bats that roam the night sky near the wildlife park.  

Over at the Kids’ Trek nature-inspired playground, children can climb like a spider, swoop like a bat and do freaky food science at 6:15 p.m. and 7:15 p.m.

Hoot ’N’ Howl evenings take place from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Oct. 14, Oct. 15, Oct. 21 and Oct. 22 at Northwest Trek Wildlife Park. Last entry is at 8 p.m.  

Online, advanced purchase tickets are encouraged. Children 2 and under are free. For more information, visit
