Kan. attraction changes name to Rolling Hills Zoo

SALINA, Kan. (AP) -- A Salina attraction is getting a new name.

The Salina Journal (http://is.gd/ONY3pY) reports that Rolling Hills Wildlife Adventure is becoming Rolling Hills Zoo. Executive director Robert Jenkins says the new name is a better reflection of what the 64,000-square-foot museum and 60-acre zoo has to offer.

He says the name "Wildlife Adventure" is a little confusing to the general public. He says the new name will make billboards clean and allow people to know what to expect.

The zoo started in 1999 as an area dedicated to the conservation and propagation of rare and endangered species in a natural setting. It now includes a wildlife museum, conference center, traveling exhibit area, children's exploration room and theater. There also are projects in science education, conservation and animal care and welfare.
