A Macon County entity is celebrating 50 years in business when they open up for the season this weekend.
Director of the Scovill Zoo Ken Frye indicates it will be Zoo's 50th year when they open for the season and indicates they are very excited for the year.
The winter has been busy for staff at the Zoo. According to Frye some changes won't be visible to their guests but there will be some things they will notice, like a new holding area for their monkeys and new fencing for the petting zoo.
Next weekend, the Scovill Zoo is doing their annual Easter Egg Hunt. Later this year, the Zoo plans to replace their train engine. They also have introduced a new toucan to their bird exhibit.
