Free Admission To Caldwell Zoo

East Texans of all ages got to go to the zoo today for free. This weekend, your admission to the Caldwell Zoo in Tyler is not green cash, it's a yellow phone book.

This is the first year the zoo has offered free admission in order to collect and recycle used phone books.  Zoo officials say they expected to collect 2,000 books today. 

"The reason we are doing this is to try to keep a small amount of trash that goes into the land fills out. We are going to take all of these phone books that we receive and have them recycled," said Caldwell Zoo Director of Visitor Services Mike Tucker.

The free day at the zoo is going on again tomorrow. You get one free admission for every outdated phone book you bring in. The free admission is good for that day only.
