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 has been 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 200 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. New specimens are being planted monthly.
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, bamboo and trees for the gardens and arboretum for many seasons to come. Planning for the 2020 season will begin soon so watch for an announcement in the near future.
