Denver Zoo: Wildlife Conservation, What it Means to be a Zoo Today, and Zoos as Community Stewards.
Tuesday, October 10th from 7.00pm to 8.30pm in the Eisenhower Chapel.
Founded in 1896, Denver Zoo is owned by the City and County of Denver and funded in part by the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District (SCFD). It serves nearly 2 million guests a year and houses and cares for more than 4,000 animals representing 600 species.
