After some delays due to redesigns and other factors, you can start picturing some of the newest residents of the Bruemmer Park Zoo in Kewaunee. Crews began work on the ornamental pheasant exhibit at Bruemmer Park Zoo in May after initially announcing it would break ground on the approximately $300,000 project in fall 2021. New ideas for the exhibit meant pushing back the bidding process to early 2022 with construction costs also playing a factor in the wait. Kewaunee County Promotions and Recreation Director Dave Myers says things are looking good so far for the structure that will house the birds in eight to ten enclosures thanks to the work of the Zoological Society of Kewaunee County.
Myers did not have an estimate on when the project would be finished, but he does hope visitors to the society’s Zoobilee celebration on September 23 will be able to get a good idea of what the exhibit will look like when they attend the event.
