Decatur Zoo Gets Grant To Build Bird Exhibit
The Scovill Zoo in Decatur is getting nearly a half-million dollars in state grants to build a walk-through bird exhibit. The money is part of a state grant program that will give out $20 million dollars in capital funds for facility improvements and added exhibits at museums operated by local governments and cities.
Scovill is also getting the funding for a crowned-crane exhibit, pavilion, ADA walkway and a generator.
Major attractions receiving money include the Shedd Aquarium, the Field Museum of Natural History and the Adler Planetarium.
