Here’s another event you might want to plan ahead for this weekend if you have an animal lover.
It’s Career Day at the Point Defiance Zoo, and it’s a Free event for kids in grades 6 and up. They don’t need to register in advance, but they do need to check-in the morning of. The event will feature talks about zoo careers and a limited number of behind the scenes tours!
If your kids are younger, you might want to try out one of their Critter Club events (a story time with an animal encounter for preschoolers), or looking into a camp. They have some coming up during winter break. These activities tend to be on the spendy side, but our boys have been to several, and they have always been excellent.
In other zoo news, Tomorrow, the 7th, is free day for City of Tacoma residents. Bring your photo id and proof of residence, such as a utility bill.
This weekend, the zoo and Northwest Trek are offering free admission to veterans and active duty military and discounts to immediate family members. Go to my Veterans Day round up for more on those!
