While zoos are closed to the public until social distancing is lifted, one way to support them is through donations.
Ken Frye, Scovill Zoo director, indicates the zoo's main source of revenue during the spring season is through families visiting the zoo and school field trips. With the zoo being closed during the stay at home order, Frye says they are thankful for the donations they have received during this time.
Frye says in addition to zoo memberships, another way to support the zoo is through animal adoptions
Donations to Scovill Zoo can be made through the Decatur Parks Foundation or call the zoo at (217) 421-7345.
