11/27/22 – Jarod Munzer, Director of the Cougar Mountain Zoo

Jarod Munzer is the director of the Cougar Mountain Zoo, home to a great variety of special animals and birds. And of great importance at this time of year, Santa’s reindeer! The largest herd of Siberian reindeer in the country call Cougar Mountain Zoo home. Among them, a little male born a year ago who, having been bottle fed, is more comfortable with human company and makes special appearances around the zoo. The annual Reindeer Festival, a treat for visitors young and old, runs December 1-30. Santa will be on site on that stretch until the 23rd, the zoo is closed Dec 24/25. This festival is a great time for making special memories, and a membership to the zoo could make for an equally delightful gift.
