Don’t wait for summer to be inspired by the unique habitats of northeast Wisconsin. This February, toss on your warm clothes, lace up your boots, and wander the Garden to gaze at habitat–themed snow sculptures. A handful of talented snow carvers from around Wisconsin will descend on the Garden in mid February to create magnificent sculptures depicting the critical need for varied habitats, how interconnected and fragile they are, and what we can do to protect them.

Beyond the sculptures, enjoy Discovery Stations and uncover unique winter wonders with a scavenger hunt. Guests will also be able to take home a free craft kit (while supplies last).
