If you want to get in to see the animals at the Scovill Zoo in Decatur, time is starting to run short.


This is the final week to check out the zoo before they close for the year. Director Ken Frye says they still have one more free admission Thursday and they have a young howler monkey that is starting to peek out from its mom's care.



When the zoo closes for the season, Frye says they keep all their animals on-site with several shelters for a number of their collection. He explains a lot of their day to day activity is the same and they continue to make enrichment a focus even though people aren't walking by the exhibits all the time.



Once the zoo closes down, the public will still have the opportunity to check out the zoo during Boo at the Zoo, their Halloween event that runs throughout several weekends in October.


Get more information on that event and other happenings at the zoo by visiting scovillzoo.org.
