CYD Youth and 4-H Team Up to Help the Dallas Zoo

Revised CYD Lion at Dallas Zoo

CYD Youth and 4-H Team Up to Help the Dallas Zoo

The Community Youth Development department has its own 4-H chapter called Creative Leaders. They work with Dallas Zoo officials to help make the living environment for the animals fun, challenging and interactive. Youth build chutes for the animals to get their peanut butter treats out of, and they whip up ice pops for the chimpanzees and lions to enjoy on hot days. This two-year-old male lion shows his appreciation.
