Fantastic Forest 2016

Sponsored by Hawks Landscape

Dec. 2-29, 2016

Fantastic Forest

Many animals sport dazzling colors and patterns – think cheetahs, red pandas, poison frogs and peacocks. You’ll get to see handmade ornaments of these animals – and many more – hanging from 63 evergreen trees at the Milwaukee County Zoo in December. The ornaments are created by Milwaukee-area youth groups who participate in the Zoological Society of Milwaukee’s Trim-a-Tree project. From Dec. 2 through Dec. 29, 2016, you can visit the Fantastic Forest in the Zoo’s U.S. Bank Gathering Place. Enjoy the vibrantly colored animal ornaments festooning the trees and admire the imagination of the child artists.

Visit the zookeeper-hosted Giving Tree, adorned with ornaments of “toys” Zoo animals need. To donate to the Giving Tree, call 414-256-5466. The Fantastic Forest is sponsored by Hawks Landscape, which is donating the trees.
