The Rising Sun Library recently hosted a program chronicling the history of the Plumpton Park Zoo.
"What I hope these kids learn is to conserve these animals and live our lives a little differently to keep animals from disappearing. I don't want the kids to take the natural world for granted. I want them to realize it is important, it is vibrant, and it's apart of us and we are apart of it. The twin pillars of zoos these days are and should be conservation and education," said Crystal Hudson, Plumpton Park Zoo's education specialist.
