Bernheim Forest will be welcoming three giant visitors to its giant woods.

As part of the forest’s 90th anniversary, Danish artist, Thomas Dambo is creating three forest giants that will live at Bernheim.

The giants are made from recycled and repurposed materials that otherwise would be thrown away.

One giant is complete; the rest are expected to be finished by March 15.

Dr. Mark Wourms, executive director at Bernheim, hopes the sculptures inspire people to recycle and take care of the planet.

“We want them to understand that they can play a role in protecting forests and water and air and wildlife,” said Wourms.

Wourms welcomes the public to watch Dambo and his team create the giants.
