LUFKIN, Texas (KTRE) - With Hurricane Ida bearing down to make landfall in Louisiana, Lufkin’s Ellen Trout Zoo is offering free admission to evacuees from coastal cities adversely affected by the storm

Gordon Henley, the zoo’s executive director, said all evacuees need to do is present an ID from an impacted area to the zoo’s admission staff to receive free admission.

“Our thoughts are with all affected by Hurricane Ida,” Henley said.

The Ellen Trout Zoo is located off the loop in Lufkin at 402 Zoo Circle. The zoo is currently open, and it will close at 5 p.m.
