Pollinator-Themed Snow Sculpture Pop-Up Exhibit Comes to Green Bay Botanical Garden

Polar Pollinator Pop-Up Kicks Off on February 21

Published Tuesday, February 11, 2020

As the winter snow lingers into late February, visitors will have the rare opportunity to admire the pollinators of spring and summer during Polar Pollinator Pop-Up at Green Bay Botanical! Not only will you be able to appreciate Mother Nature’s beautiful seasonal treasures while walking in wonder around the Garden, but also marvel at handmade snow and ice sculptures depicting butterflies, bees, flowers and other aspects of pollination in nature.


On February 20, Christy Dunsmoor, Jeff Olson, Ann Marie Harder and Karen Harder, all talented Wisconsin-based snow and ice carvers, will create these magnificent sculptures. Pending Mother Nature, the exhibit will feature four ice sculptures and four snow sculptures the public can see on Friday, February 21; Saturday, February 22; and Monday, February 24 through Saturday, February 29. In addition to the exhibit, visitors will be able to traverse a discovery trail and search out unique winter scenes as well as enjoy craft activities indoors.


The weather will ultimately determine the best dates for this event, so visitors planning to attend should check GBBG.org and the Garden’s Facebook page the week of February 17 for the latest updates.
