Caldwell Zoo

        Our Bear scouts will be visiting the Caldwell Zoo to complete requirement d of Sharing Your World with Wildlife " " Achievement 5 " in the bear book.  This Zoo is in Tyler Texas and has free admission.  It is over 60 acres and has animals from North America, South America and Africa.  They have a picnic area so you can save on the cost by packing a picnic lunch. 

        This is a great zoo and I have taken my children there many times.  It is about one and a half hours drive and is a great day trip.  A trip to a zoo is a great pack activity as well.  

        You may have to fill out a tour permit to travel the zoo nearest you.  I have included a link to find the zoo nearest you.
