Katie's Night- A night of conservation, comedy, and community
The Katie Adamson Conservation Fund is a Denver community based project that wants to empower the people of our planet to work together to protect the remaining ecosystems and the wildlife we share our planet with.
Dave Johnson, a local zookeeper, started this non-profit in honor of his now deceased zoo explorer, intern and friend, Katie Adamson. She passed away while studying up at CSU from a childhood cancer, and with her parents help and the backing of an entire community, they are moving forward to save the remaining species in places like Nepal, Tanzania, and Costa Rica. Katie was excited to be a zookeeper and conservationist, and they are carrying on her dreams together. Dave has been working at the zoo here for 19 years and writes kids conservation books to spread his passion for conservation and the animals he loves.
