Earth Day Event At Caldwell Zoo

There was an Earth Day celebration Saturday in Tyler at a place where conservation is practiced everyday.  At the Caldwell Zoo, East Texans learned how simple conservation efforts can make a huge difference to wildlife in our own backyards.  Texas Parks and Wildlife was there with bird nests found right here in East Texas. Children even had the opportunity to build their own bird houses to take home with them.  

"We just figured since we are a zoo here and we should find conservation important we do that everyday with our animals, so this gives us an opportunity to come and let the community see what else we can do in the community to preserve our earth and preserve our animals and just educate," said event organizer Lea Mewborn.  

This is the zoo's first large earth day celebration. Organizers say they hope to make it an annual event.
