Out and About: Washington's Northwest Trek

Out and About: Washington's Northwest Trek

A great place to spot animals outside of a zoo is at Washington's Northwest Trek. Over 200 North American species call this 723-acre wildlife park home! Once there, take a free-roaming area tram tour to see creatures like bighorn sheep, woodland caribou, and mountain goats.

The goal of Northwest Trek is to display wildlife in their natural environments, and they are dedicated to several conservation and research projects. In June 2007, six offspring from a nesting pair of trumpeter swans left the park to help repopulate the Midwestern flyways where the species was extinct for 125 years! Check this park out in Eatonville, about 55 miles south of Seattle on the way to Mt. Rainier National Park.

I grew up about 5 miles from there, they used to have slug races! I don't know if they still do, kinda funny.
