LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - The Lufkin Rotary Club recently was awarded a grant that they used to improve the living conditions for several animals at the Ellen Trout Zoo.
The grant awarded the group money to complete a $3,000 project that would provide a new covering in the back holding area for the ducks and swans.
The Rotary club will have to pay for half of the project.
"It's a great group for us to partner with," Cindy Tierney said.
The new roof will allow for better protection from the weather and predatorial birds during the night.
