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, is holding its annual holiday sale from Monday, December 4 through Monday, December 18.
All items, including books for children and adults, videos, stuffed animals, puzzles, puppets, games and hats 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 will not be discounted, they are also for sale at NWIA locations and may be purchased as gifts. “The 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:
Olympic National Park Visitor Center
3002 Mount Angeles Road in Port Angeles
10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Thursday through Monday
Olympic National Forest & Olympic National Park Recreation Information Center
Transit Center, Forks
10:00 a.m. – 4:00 a.m. Friday through Sunday
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 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.
