NEW SURFACE INSTALLED IN PLAZA
ARBORETUM PLANS EXPANSION FOR 2019
ZooMontana is installing a new surface at Plaza Junction. This will be a huge improvement over the previous asphalt surface and will make navigation easier, especially for handicapped individuals and strollers. Access to the plaza will also be easier for large trucks and vendors during scheduled celebrations. It will be completed in time for all the major 2019 activities.
In March of 2018 the Yellowstone Arboretum received national certification from ArbNet. Located on the grounds of the Zoo the visitor can now find 150 species of trees located on 70 acres all connected by the ZooMontana pathway system. Each species has been signed with the Common name, Latin name and website map location
Society volunteers installed a new cover on the old greenhouse located in the back of the zoo. This improvement is now offering a full-fledged working greenhouse and will provide flowers, plants and trees for the gardens and arboretum. A watering volunteer list will be forthcoming for those interested in helping nature the new plants.
Here's the latest photos of the greenhouse improvement project. We will also be replacing fascia board and installing an air vent. If you get a chance take a look at the dragonflies on the roof. They are solar-powered and light up at night !
