Join the WDFW Habitat at Home program at Northwest Trek Wildlife Park for an unusual of celebration of an important terrestrial mollusk: slugs! 

Why do we have this zaniest of festivals? If you've ever hiked a Northwest forest, you'll know our slugs are among the biggest and best. But they're also vital to our ecosystem, breaking down organic matter and returning it to the forest floor, where it becomes food for our beautiful plants and trees. Long live slugs!

We'll be sharing Habitat at Home resources and activities, come join the slug fun.
