Tossing pumpkins makes for a ‘howling’ good time

Tigers for Tomorrow plans to have a ‘howling’ good time this fall.

Each Saturday and Sunday at 2 p.m. from Oct. 9 to Nov. 28, Tigers for Tomorrow will host its Pumpkin Toss, providing animals with fun enrichment and a snack. The event will start at the MolJac Bear Wolf Education Pavilion each day. Please bring pumpkins to donate to the toss.

The facility’s second Recycled Scarecrow Contest will take place any weekend of October, Friday through Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Recycle and repurpose items like milk jugs, old clothes, boxes and more to create a scarecrow that will decorate the preserve. Scarecrows will be judged at the end of October and winners will receive a private feed tour of the preserve with up to five family members.

The preserve is open to the public from October to December, Friday through Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Last admission time is 4 p.m. Cost of admission is $15 for adults and $7.50 for children four to 11. Children three and under are free. No reservations are needed to visit. The preserve is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays, but private tours are available by appointment Tuesday through Sunday for $200 minimum (four people) and $30/person in addition to the initial four people.

Scarecrows will be judged at the end of October and our winners will receive a private feed tour of the preserve with up to 5 family members.
