TREEmendous Extreme Tree Houses Exhibition at Missouri Botanical Garden Zoo and Aquarium Visitor News
The Missouri Botanical Garden invites visitors to branch out from the ordinary notion of tree houses with an original exhibition of nine TREEmendous Extreme Tree Houses. View the winning works of a juried competition to construct imaginative, non-traditional, ground-level structures beneath the canopy of the Garden’s oak, elm, gingko and other stately trees. The Extreme Tree Houses are on outdoor display Saturday, Apr. 30 through Sunday, Aug. 21 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. The exhibit is included with general admission and highlights the Garden’s TREEmendous year of activities in recognition of the United Nations (U.N.) International Year of Forests.

The Extreme Tree Houses exhibition is designed to showcase the creativity and talent of the local community while also reinforcing the significant role trees play in our lives and in the health of our planet. Designers were encouraged to ponder the concepts of sustainability, exploration and play in the outdoors, nature-inspired design, imagination and more through their installations.
