Denver Zoo partners with Nuggets to give back to the community

As leaders in the Denver community, the Denver Nuggets and Denver Zoo organizations teamed up in an effort to say thank you to supporters of the seven-county Scientific and Cultural Facilities District (SCFD). Thursday, November 20 was a free day at the Zoo – made possibly by SCFD support – and Zoo guests were selected at random for a surprise, behind-the-scenes tour accompanied by players from the Nuggets, including JaVale McGee, Danilo Gallinari, Timofey Mozgov and Jusuf Nurkic.

Denver Zoo visitors can take their picture with an elephantine-sized pumpkin at this weekend’s Fall Festival, on October 11 and 12, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. A week later, on Saturday, October 18, the 400-pound pumpkin will be pulverized by one of the Zoo’s Asian elephants in a Zoo Halloween season tradition, the “Squish the Squash” demonstration.

Denver Zoo’s Director of Safety and Sustainability Jennifer Hale and Zookeeper Sue Peters will travel to the tundra near Churchill, Canada, in early October for a week-long Climate Alliance training sponsored by Polar Bears International (PBI), a conservation group. The PBI Climate Alliance program brings together key staff members at organizations that are leading the effort in their communities to reduce CO2. Denver Zoo, which is part of PBI’s network of Arctic Ambassador Centers, selected Hale and Peters based on their past outreach and community involvement. They will join fourteen other zoo professionals from across the U.S., Canada, Austria, and Denmark.
