The Ellen Trout Zoo is hosting a special treasure hunt for kids 12 & younger.

The cost is $15 per person, and it's required for each child to have an adult with them, but it seems worth it to be creating fun memories that you can't get anywhere else.

It's also required that you get your tickets early, so they can get a proper headcount and plan accordingly.

It's all happening on Saturday, March 4th, starting at 10 AM, with a second treasure hunt starting at 2 PM.

You may find that the journey itself is the treasure, but just imagine being surrounded by the animals of the Lufkin Zoo, as you make your way through the corridors to seek out clues and treasure.

Let's just hope the folks at the zoo didn't hide anything under an alligator!
