Learn about endangered creatures

July 18, 2014 

Visitors to Northwest Trek Wildlife Park can learn about all endangered species Saturday and Sunday, as the park celebrates its annual Endangered Species Weekend. Activities will run from 11 a.m.-6 p.m. at the park, 11610 Trek Drive E., Eatonville.

Among the activities is “What’s Your Status: Secure or Endangered?” Participants will create a mask based on the animal they want to be. As visitors travel through the park, they will earn points toward “survival” as they stop at various locations.

There also will be crafts at the Cheney Discovery Center and displays highlighting endangered species.

The park’s staff has helped with recovery efforts of several endangered species, including trumpeter swans, Oregon spotted frogs, Western toads and fishers.

The activities are including in park admission: adults ages 13-64, $14.75-$19.75; youths ages 5-12, $11.25-$12.25; tots ages 3-4, $8.25-$9.25; kids 2 and younger free.
