Hop on over to Cheyenne Mountain Zoo for an Easter tradition Sunday, April 24. Visit the Lodge at Moose Lake between 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. to color a hard boiled egg at one of the special decorating stations, then check the feeding schedule to watch as zookeepers distribute the eggs to the animals between 11:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Special treats like this enrich the animals, promote mental and physical exercise, and stimulate the natural behavior of foraging for food.
