As you look ahead to the New Year, make sure you stop to smell the evergreens and celebrate the holidays with your co-workers! Show your hard-working staff that you appreciate their efforts by inviting them to a truly unique tree trimming party. Gather your employees and come out to Brookfield Zoo for a family-friendly company outing to decorate your very own Corporate Tree!

By sponsoring a Corporate Tree during Brookfield Zoo's Holiday Magic, your team can share the joys of the holidays together. Plus, you'll show the nearly 100,000 visitors that attend Holiday Magic that your company cares about the community it serves. What a wonderful way to say Seasons Greetings!

Assemble your group, collect or make your ornaments, and head to the zoo from 10:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, November 23 and Sunday, November 24 to decorate your Corporate Tree!

Please Note: There will be lane closures on 1st Avenue during Tree Trim, which may impact your visit. Please allow extra time to park. We suggest parking in the North West Parking Lot as the best option to avoid traffic.
