A Message from Bob Chastain, CMZoo President & CEO

June 4, 2020

As many of you know, even though we have been closed for the past 11+ weeks, work has not stopped at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo. Through our social media channels, we have shown you lots of sneak peeks at what our keepers and animals have been up to, but Bob Chastain, president and CEO of #CMZoo, has also been busy. Among the many partnerships formed during this critical time, some of those formed out of working through our variance request to reopen the Zoo have been the most important. Huge thanks go out to the Colorado Springs Mayor’s Office, including Mayor John Suthers and City Manager Jeff Greene, El Paso County Public Health and officials at all three area hospitals, and the El Paso County Commissioners. We are still waiting for the final step for reopening, but Bob’s here to tell you a little bit more about the process, introduce you to some excited and friendly warthogs, and talk about what reopening will look like, especially for our members. #ClosedButStillCaring #AbnormallyNormalatCMZoo
