The Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo will renovate a 21-year-old classroom called the Jungle Lab.
It's deep in the Indonesian rain forest exhibit, past the monkeys and tigers, and now, the lab is set for a facelift. The Jungle Lab brings in students during field trips and summer camp to learn about animals in an interactive environment.
The $75,000 renovation gift comes from the American Electric Power Foundation.
Erica Putt, a spokeswoman for AEP and Indiana Michigan Power, says the foundation donates money for programs that help build students’ science and math skills.
