Veterans' Appreciation Day
For those who serve
It's the perfect getaway to remind you and your family of what you love about America. Take a tram around our Free-Roaming Area and spot majestic bison, elk, moose, mountain goats and more, all framed in the awesome beauty of the Northwest. Hike our trails to meet animals close-up: eagles, beavers, opossums. Bring the kids to explore tiny wildlife in the Cheney Discovery Center: toads, snakes and more.
Experience the awe and majesty of Eagle Passage. Symbol of our land, the bald eagle was saved from extinction by the American people. Meet our rescued eagles in this immersive, walk-through habitat, climb into a lifesize "nest", test your wingspan and more.
Warm up with hot drinks and lunch in our Forest Cafe, or play some more at our nature-inspired Kids' Trek playground.
We're giving free admission for active-duty military and veterans; half-price general admission for immediate family members. Please bring military ID.
Our sister zoo Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium is offering the same military discounts.
