Calling all animal lovers and nature enthusiasts! Through our Trim to Treat partnership, some of the trees and branches our forestry crews regularly trim are donated and delivered to the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium and The Wilds. These fresh tree trimmings, also known as browse, are not only important to the animals’ diets but also beneficial for enrichment.

If you plan to visit the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium over the next few months, don’t miss the opportunity to learn more about our forestry team’s work to keep your power on and see firsthand how it also benefits animals.
