COLORADO SPRINGS – Winners of the Cheyenne Moutain Zoo’s conservation grants were announced on Tuesday.

The money will go to projects all around the world, and also right in the zoo’s backyard. Five local schools are getting money for their pollinator gardens.

At Rockrimmon Elementary students use the garden to learn the importance of pollination, growing and other things.

“I think it’s just going to enrich our science curriculum, as well as language arts, math, it’s just going to be an incredible place to work and also be at peace at,” said teacher Stacie Johnson.

Cheyenne Mountain Zoo grants have supported conservation projects here at home and around the globe since 2015.
