The results are in! A few weeks ago, I told you guys that the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo was nominated for best zoo according to USA Today, along with The Denver Zoo and Disney's Magic Kingdom. Not that its shocking, but this year is the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo's third year making the top ten. In addition to the big win, the Rocky Mountain Wild exhibit won fifth place for best zoo exhibit in North America. CMZ was beat out for the number one spot by the Cincinnati Zoo and the Botanical Gardens.
President and CEO Bob Chastain said in a press release: "It means a great deal to know that people voted for us. We work hard to provide an environment where our community members can come to be inspired. This national recognition reminds us that the impact of our mission reaches beyond the city of Colorado Springs,”
Are you planning a trip to the number six zoo in North America this summer??
