Cheyenne Mountain Zoo presents TEDDY BEAR DAYS!
Join the grizzly bears and the Rocky Mountain Wild fun this summer during the 24th Annual Teddy Bear Days at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo!
Kids 12 and under who are accompanied by a teddy bear (or other stuffed animal) will get into the zoo for just $5.25. (Of course, zoo members are always free.) Plus they will enjoy special event activities both days from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., including a teddy bear clinic, face painting, and special bear grotto demonstrations and grizzly bear demonstrations daily.
Bears that stop in at the special teddy bear clinic, located in the Lodge at Moose Lake, are provided free "check-ups." With tender loving care, volunteers administer stitches, splints and other necessary "medical" procedures to needy stuffed animals. Each bear's weight, height, temperature and overall condition is officially recorded and all bears will receive a signed certificate of "Beary Good Health," along with a goodie back pack provided by Memorial Hospital for Children. So much fun it'll be unbearable!
