Join us July 30th for a private behind the scenes tour of the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo! Trip Advisor rated Cheyenne Mountain Zoo as one of the top 10 zoos in the United States!
With more than 600,000 annual guests and 950 animals, the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo generates a lot of waste. The elephants alone can produce up to 1,200 pounds of dung each day. By composting the waste in their elephant building, African Rift Valley exhibit and hippo area, the Zoo was able to reduce thier trash output from 102 yards of trash per week to only 4 cubic yards per week (a cubic yard of animal dung can weigh up to 400 pounds). The Zoo has also started composting efforts in the commissary and Grizzly Grill kitchen areas. Right now, they are composting an estimated 790 tons of material annually. This means the Zoo is diverting 15 tons of trash each week from local landfills!
We will be touring their operations and learning about their environmental and conservation efforts.
Join us at 3:00 for the tour, after the tour the Overlook Bar will be open for us to purchase drinks and appetizers.
