The Lincoln Park Zoo is scheduled to celebrate the life of a former zoo director Thursday.

The zoo is throwing a 90th birthday party for Doctor Lester Fisher.

Doctor Fisher's 30-year tenure helped transform the Lincoln Park Zoo.

His favorite zoo animals, the gorillas, will join in Thursday's birthday festivities by tearing into a specially made birthday cake.
