Sponsored by Hawks Landscape

More than 50 trees, donated by Hawks Landscape, are decorated by local youth groups for all to see and enjoy. Each year the Zoological Society chooses a theme and groups are assigned to a category. Groups handmake 60-70 ornaments based on their assigned category and are invited to decorate their assigned tree inside the Zoo.

The creativity of these animal-themed ornaments will surely impress Zoo guests. The trees will be displayed through the month of December and viewable during open hours. For more information, go to zoosociety.org.
