For a limited time, Northwest Trek and Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium are offering a 10% discount on membership to active duty military, veterans and spouses with Military ID. This 10% discount will work on membership to either the zoo or Northwest Trek, as well as on combination memberships for both.    This discount for military families on membership is only good through February 28th.

In order to buy the discounted membership, families will need to purchase admission at the front gate for the zoo or Northwest Trek and bring in either active duty or veteran identification, discharge papers, DD-214 or other proof of honorable military service. This discount is also available to spouses with military ID. {This membership discount is not valid on Patron or Sponsor Memberships}. It is $115 for a family membership to the zoo so after the discount, it would be $103.50. There are a number of other options as well.

We have had a membership to the zoo & NW Trek this year thanks to a family Christmas gift last year from my dad and I can tell you that it was probably the best gift we received! We have been able to take friends and family this year and it’s been a big money-saver. If you plan on going several times during the year with your family, the membership is definitely the best deal as the ticket prices add up quickly for each trip. If you have a family of 5, you would pay for the membership in just 2 visits, so definitely something to think about! You’ll also get 50% off admission to Zoolights at Christmastime.

We have also found that the membership comes in handy for when you’re traveling as you can get discounted or even FREE admission to other zoos and museums. We went to a children’s museum which had a small zoo this summer in Ohio and we got FREE admission through their reciprocal agreement with participating locations. We’ve also gotten into the Columbus Zoo in Ohio for a reduced rate.

  • Unlimited admission for a full year
