Snow level 1000 feet. The beavers typically eat root vegetables and a “formulated diet with just a little of apple,” said Amy Cutting, who oversees the zoo’s Great Northwest area.
The 2020 Summer Solstice at the Zoo 5K, scheduled for June 18, is canceled in accordance with Oregon Governor Brown’s continued restrictions on public gatherings. ORR supports these restrictions to help keep all participants and volunteers safe and healthy.
The loop course, run entirely within the Zoo, will give participants the chance to see the Elephant Lands, the African Rainforest, Pacific Shores and the Primate Forest. Day of race registration and packet pickup will start at 5 pm just inside the Zoo entrance at the ORR tables near the Zoo’s Cascade Grill.
On-site registration for the Summer Solstice event is available, but costs $5 more and no ORR member discount is available at that time. The course starts & finishes in the area between the concert lawn and the Elephant Lands.
Participants will get a chance to run on roads not open to the public during normal operating hours. There are some tight spots on the course, and we ask that everyone exercise caution.
Tot Trot This event for 0-2 years of age will be an out-and-back on the bridge located at the Elephant Lands. Kids’ Fun Run This event for 3-11 years of age will be one loop on the 5K course.
All 5K, Kids’ Fun Run, and Tot Trot participants will receive specially designed custom bibs for this event. For those not registered as walkers or runners, you’ll receive an ORR wristband with your entry fee to identify you as part of our event.
You are permitted to bring your own food & drink (non-alcoholic) to have a picnic but please see restrictions below. Everyone registered for an event (excluding Tot Trot) will receive a dinner voucher for a meal that consists of a Jenner’s All Natural Hot Dog Meal, chips, and soda.
A: No, t-shirt sales are online only, and they will stop taking orders 2 weeks prior to the day of the event. Last day to order shirts is Thursday, June 6th.
There are many spots where the course narrows and for the safety of your fellow participants we ask that you refrain from using strollers. There will be no results posted, but a clock will be present for those of you interested in your finish time.
A: Yes, but please exercise caution as the zoo does a final sweep for visitors that can take 45-60 minutes. It’s always a great idea to carpool or take public transit.
You must pay for parking at the zoo unless you take public transit. The Tot Trot starts at 6:45 pm and its course goes across and back the bridge to Forest Hall in the Elephant Lands exhibit.
The Kids’ Fun Run starts immediately after the 5K begins. Alternatively (3), kids who are at least 3 years old may participate in the full 5K event.
Day of Race registration and bib pickup will be held just inside the zoo entrance near the Cascade Grill. Day of Race registration is credit card only.
Prior to his death, Pack was reportedly the oldest Asian elephant living in North America. While TB is an infectious disease that can be transmitted to both humans and elephants, the zoo had strict quarantine measures in place, according to Team Pack.
“We'd run out of options for treating him,” Dr. Tim Storms, OregonZoo's lead veterinarian, said in the statement. “The remaining treatments involved side effects that would have been very hard on Pack with no guarantee of success, plus a risk of creating further resistance.
“If the zoo is going to use the term euthanasia, then I call on them to immediately make public the clinical veterinary documents that support that this was truly to alleviate suffering as the only possibility,” she said. If anything, Roof believes the zoo killed Pack because he was no longer financially valuable.
Oregon was also listed as one of the 10 worst zoos in the United States in 2016 by IDA, mainly for removing an 8-year-old Asian bull named Saundra from his mother, Rose-Tu, when he should have still been living with her, and also for beating Rose-Tu. Team Pack could not be reached for comment, but they wrote of their sadness in a recent Facebook post : “As I am sure most of you have heard, the worst has happened.
Please understand that we will be offline for the most part as we take time to mourn the loss of our beloved family member.” “As much as we don't like zoos, we greatly respect the commitment and courage that these handlers have shown,” Roof said.
