Despite snow, Roosevelt Park Zoo reopening

Greater Minot Zoological Society coordinator Staci Skeldum confirmed Monday afternoon that restoration on Roosevelt Park Zoo is still under way and that the zoo will reopen as planned May 4, despite the abnormally late, heavy snowfall muffling activity in the region.

“We’re still set for May 4!” said Skeldum. “No matter how the weather is, we’ll be here.”

It will be the first time the zoo has been open to the public since its closure during Minot’s 2011 flood.
