Pheasant exhibit looks for a builder

The Bruemmer Park Zoo is looking for a builder for its new ornamental pheasant exhibit in hopes of opening it sometime next year. The Kewaunee County Promotions and Recreation Department and the Zoological Society of Kewaunee County broke ground on the exhibit during its annual Zoobilee event last month. The $300,000 exhibit received a big boost when the family of the park’s namesake donated $100,000 in addition to the funds for animal sculptures. Promotions and Recreation Direction Dave Myers said last month the first new animal exhibit in nearly four decades is important to keeping visitors coming to the park.

The department is taking bids for the construction of the exhibit through October 21st after setting an original deadline of October 13th. You can find the request for bids here.
