Pueblo Zoo not only celebrates Military Weekend, but also celebrates another powerful American icon, the American Bison, on Saturday, November 6th.

In 2016, the National Bison Legacy Act was signed to make American Bison a national mammal in the United States. Less than a century later, a herd of great North American bison was extinct only by human action during the western expansion of 19th-century European settlements.

Their population has dropped from 40 million to less than 1,000, but thanks to conservation efforts, the herd has returned to more than 500,000. Pueblo Zoo is supporting the Laramie Hills Bison Conservation Group and its efforts to return this native icon to shortgrass prairies in northern Colorado.

The Pueblo Zoo now has two majestic male bison, Cody and his son CJ.

From 10 am to 2 pm on Saturday, November 6th, there will be crafts, educational presentations and nature maintenance activities available to aspiring participants.
