The zoo in Lufkin just added a rare baby animal. And in Tyler, a big expansion is making progress and should be finished this spring. Our zoos in East Texas may not be the biggest in Texas, but they're unique, interesting, and they keep on growing.
Most of us artificial Christmas tree users are hauling the tree up to the attic this week. If you're the real tree type, there are options to recycle it, and maybe even help the animals at Ellen Trout Zoo while you're at it.
