School forest celebrates new art exhibit

Posted:

WAUSAU (WAOW)- The DC Everest school forest unveiled a new exhibit.

Hundreds gathered this afternoon at the school forest to celebrate the grand opening. The new "Wild Wisconsin" exhibit features wildlife that students can find in their own backyards.

DC Everest School Forest Director, Cindy Damrow, hopes this exhibit will encourage students to explore the great outdoors. Damrow says, "We want to get kids excited about local wildlife that they might see in the wild areas around Wisconsin, or that they might view in their own backyards"

It took 2/12 years to design and complete the new exhibit. Damrow says local businesses helped to pay for the artwork. The school hopes the exhibit will teach students for years to come.
