Pumpkin Chomp 'n' Stomp
The most fun you can have with a pumpkin.
We all love pumpkins - and our animals do too! Watch them chomp, stomp and roll all day. Some will also get the winning "scare-critters" from Hoot 'n' Howl as enrichment!
Here's the schedule:
11:30am Badgers (pumpkins)
1:30pm Grizzlies (pumpkins)
3pm Wolves (pumpkins and scare-critter)
11:30am Wolverine (pumpkins and scare-critter)
1:30pm Porcupine (pumpkins)
3pm Wolves (pumpkins)
Then have some fall fun yourself! Fall is one of the most beautiful times here at Northwest Trek: misty mornings, crisp air, lush leaf color and a hint of snow. Slide and climb at the Kids' Trek playground, ride the Free-Roaming Area tram to spot elk, moose, bison and more, take a Keeper Adventure Tour. Or just get close to nature on our trails.
Do come in costume - but adults, leave the scary masks and face paint at home, please.
Did you know? Many of our pumpkins were grown right here at Northwest Trek by students at the local Weyerhaeuser Elementary School! They had a special field trip to harvest them and hide them for animals. Story coming soon!
