Leftover Pumpkins Leave Oakland Zoo Critters Thankful

Leftover pumpkins a treat at  Oakland ZooThousands of donated leftover pumpkins turned into treats for Oakland Zoo’s animals this week! Truckloads of large, medium, and mini pumpkins from local patches were sorted and unloaded. Besides being added to many animal diets, zookeepers have creatively crafted the orange vegetables into enrichment items such as pumpkin kabobs, gourd bowls filled with meat treats, puzzle feeders, and even frozen delicacies.

“The pumpkin is amongst the favorite of treats for elephants,” said Gina Kinzley, Lead Elephant Keeper. “Not only used for chopping up into small bits to spread, the pumpkins are also fed out whole, frozen, and on kabobs for the elephants to discover in their habitat. If they can’t fit a pumpkin directly into their mouth, they puncture it with their tusks or stomp it open with their foot. Most of these leftover pumpkins would otherwise we thrown out or tilled back into the land. The donations provide a fun and healthy food source for our animals at Oakland Zoo.”

TPA’s Post-Halloween Bash a Monstrous Success!

Post_Halloween_2014_9753On November 9th, more than 150 TPAers gathered together to celebrate the close of the haunt season together at our Post-Halloween Bash, making the event an incredible success! Not only was everyone anxious to get together and hang out, sharing stories of their own Halloween adventures, Theme Park Adventure was excited to host the big shebang in our new digs at Don The Beachcomber!

The move from Trader Sam’s at the Disneyland Hotel to Don The Beachcomber wasn’t one that was a flip decision. For 2 1/2 years, TPAers have gathered under the tiki torches at Sam’s each month in a show of community that has grown – and outgrown that particular venue. And quite honestly, we were fairly nervous about moving our gathering spot, not knowing what impact it might have on the group and peoples’ decisions to join us. Fortunately, our amazing group has become so large and so dedicated to the spirit of community, they came in droves to Don The Beachcomber – and were really excited by what they found waiting at the new location!
