Oakland Zoo animals are helping reduce fire danger in Joaquin Miller Park!

Through cooperative efforts of Friends of Joaquin Miller Park (FoJMP), Friends of Sausal Creek (FOSC), community volunteers, Oakland Public Works and Oakland Zoo staff, invasive and flammable acacia trees are being cut down in Joaquin Miller Park and fed to giraffes and other animals at the Oakland Zoo.
