Fall Festivities all October long
September 8, 2021

Each weekend in October, “spooky” fall fun can be found at Northwest Trek Wildlife Park. From a scavenger hunt to exploring the forest at night, there is something for everyone to enjoy. The park will be decorated with eerie spider webs, spooky glow-in-the-dark eyes and pumpkins everywhere! We encourage guests to wear their Halloween costumes any weekend of the month (we ask that adults leave their scary masks and face paint at home, please).

Haunted Hike: Oct. 1-31 (Friday-Sunday), 9:30am-3pm

Did you hear that? Something’s afoot at Northwest Trek. Walk our paths while you do an online scavenger hunt to solve the mystery. (QR code at the entrance).

Free with admission or membership. Online tickets encouraged.

Hoot ‘n’ Howl: Oct. 15-16 & Oct. 22-23, 5pm-9pm

Explore the wildlife park at night–safely! Walk our animal paths lit with spooky lights and visit multiple trick-or-treat stations. Listen for nighttime animal noises. Climb like a spider or swoop like a bat at the Kids’ Trek nature-inspired playground, now specially lit up. Do Freaky Food Science at the Kids’ Trek pavilion (6:15pm and 7:15pm).

Nocturnal animals are wide-awake for Hoot ‘n’ Howl! Come meet them and their keepers at a Keeper Chat: barn owl, raccoon, beaver…you never know who you’ll find up and about! (5:30pm, 6:30pm, 7:30pm)

NOTE: No tram tours this year as we build for new ones.

Pumpkin Chomp & Stomp: Oct. 30-31, 9:30am-3pm

Everyone loves pumpkins – but at Northwest Trek we take that to a whole new level. Look for pumpkins around the park, and keep your eyes peeled: Our animals LOVE pumpkins, and we are giving them some! Watch them chomp, stomp and roll all day.

Price: Free with admission or membership. Online tickets encouraged.
