Northwest Interpretive Association (NWIA), the non-profit association that provides books and educational materials in Olympic National Park and Olympic National Forest visitor centers and ranger stations, will hold its annual holiday sale from Monday, December 10 through Monday, December 24.
All items, including books for children and adults, videos, stuffed animals, puzzles, puppets, games, hats and 2008 calendars featuring Ross Hamilton photos will be offered for 15% off the regular price. NWIA members, and members of other national park cooperating associations, will receive 30% off the regular price.
While the Olympic National Park Annual Pass and the Interagency Annual Pass will not be discounted, they are also for sale at NWIA locations and may be purchased as gifts.
“The Olympic National Park annual pass is a great value for anyone who makes at least two trips into the park in a year,” remarked Olympic National Park Superintendent Bill Laitner.
Both NWIA sale items and park passes will be offered at the following locations:
The Northwest Interpretive Association sells educational materials at national parks and forests throughout the Pacific Northwest, using the proceeds to help support research, education and interpretation in the parks and forests. At Olympic, NWIA funds the park’s winter and summer (more) newspapers, as well as educational trail guides, and has contributed to the construction of several park nature trails.
Proceeds from the $30 annual Olympic National Park Pass also benefit Olympic National Park. Eighty percent of the fee revenue collected in Olympic National Park remains in Olympic National Park, where it is used for projects that directly benefit park visitors, including trail maintenance, campground improvements, installation of accessible restroom and visitor service.
