Slug Fest: A celebration of slugs? Sure! Why not!
Slug Fest is returning to Northwest Trek Wildlife Park on Saturday and Sunday, June 26-27.
Who knows? You might leave with a new appreciation for these slippery creatures. And this event surely will be irresistible to some kids.
The fun will include slug decorations throughout the park, and visitors can craft and wear your own tentacles and stroll around the park for the “Be a Slug” activity walk, including:
- How slow can you go?
- Look out for slug predators!
- “How to Teach a Slug to Read” story walk (written by Susan Pearson and illustrated by David Slonim)
Hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days, and Slug Fest is free with park admission or membership.
Northwest Trek is a 723-acre zoological park featuring Northwest wildlife in their natural habitats. It is 35 miles southeast of Tacoma off Highway 161 in Eatonville.
