Veterans' Appreciation Days

November 9 - 11, 2019 9:30AM - 3:00PM

All veterans and active-duty military get free admission, and their families get half-off general admission at the front gate.

For those who serve

Peace, calm, majesty

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.

Symbol of America

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.

Bald Eagle Keeper Chats 1:30pm each day

Make it a wild weekend

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.
And why not make it a wild weekend? Our sister zoo Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium is offering the same military discounts for the entire weekend.
