Ameren to give tree, shrub trimmings to Scovill Zoo to feed animals


DECATUR, Ill. (WAND) - Scovill Zoo and Ameren Illinois are teaming up to launch a new program that will help feed animals.

Excess tree and shrub trimmings will be brought in from around Macon County to the zoo to be snacks for the animals there.

Ameren works with Wright Tree Service to cut branches in right of ways and easements. The trimmings are recycled or turned into mulch.

Now, those will be given to the zoo for several herbivore species.
