Caldwell Zoo Honored for Smoke-Free Environment

Animals at Caldwell Zoo in Tyler have been well protected from second-hand smoke.

That's because Caldwell Zoo is a smoke-free environment, and it has been since last year.

The zoo instated its no-smoking policy to protect the thousands of kids and other visitors from second hand smoke. And because Friday was "World No Tobacco Day," the Texas Department of Health presented Caldwell Zoo with a special certificate for their efforts.
