A prominent Albany citizen celebrated their birthday today--Zoologist, Jim Fowler!

He celebrated with folks from Chehaw Park by having lunch and chocolate cake at Cafe 230.

He reflected on his success and attributes it to something he learned while at college in Indiana.

"I like to tell people when I went to college up there, liberal arts college, that I caught a disease, and it's true, a lot of people have it. But my disease was that nobody ever told me what I couldn't do," says Fowler.

Fowler turned 82 years old today, but he's still as active as ever!
