Further to the Pueblo Zoo press release dated June 8, the date of the opening of the African painted dog exhibit has been moved to July 11. Despite losing more than three work weeks due to weather, our contractors did a stellar job of keeping the construction going. However, the lost days and severe weather finally caught up to us, forcing us to delay the opening of the exhibit by a week.
Please refer to the original Press Kit for in depth details about bringing the new exhibit to Pueblo and additional photos.
The sneak peek will now be on Thursday, July 9 from 11:00 – 1:00 and Friday, July 10 from 10:00 – 4:00. Current capital campaign donors will be invited to the sneak peek on both days while members will have access to the sneak peek on Friday. This will give press an opportunity to get coverage of the public experiencing the dogs for the first time. Please contact Abbie Krause if you need to make alternate arrangements.
