NEW CURBING INSTALLED IN SENSORY GARDEN
ARBORETUM PLANS EXPANSION FOR 2019
NEW OVERHEAD DRIPLINE INSTALLED
Projects are complete and one of those was the installation of new curbing in the Sensory Garden in 2017. The curbing added aesthetic value as well as a practical application to help alleviate erosion problems. The curbing was designed to match the existing profile. Stop out and see the changes !
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 overhead drip system at the Zoo. The dripline will ease the watering of the flower pots located at the door entrances of the Zoo Visitor Center. There are plans to install a self-timer as well. This year the system was fired up and some training will be planned.
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 !
