Scovill Zoo

Trips to the Zoo are one of the many summertime activities that can be enjoyed by the whole family. Scovill Zoo in Decatur has up-coming holiday events, free admission days, and the members of the animal kingdom that will make memories. Ken Frye, the director of Scovill Zoo, came on the WTIM Morning show with a special guest, Pugsly, a 2 year old American Alligator that Frye held and demonstrated on during our time in the newsroom. 


An alligator anatomy lesson and how the species persists in the wild are just some of the things Ken Frye brought to speak about. This summer is filled with events in and out of the zoo. The Mobile Zoo Program takes these exotic animals on the road and in front of eyes that may not be able to see the animals within the zoo limits.


Scovill Zoo is open from April to October. With many events to look forward to during the summer months, one of those are free admission days. Every Thursday until October 5th, the gates of Scovill Zoo are open, free to the public.


This fathers day Scovill Zoo is honoring the dads with $2 dollar admission for the whole family, or every person in the party. Ken Frye explains that this is a nice way to get the whole family into the Zoo without breaking the bank.
