Colorado Habitat Tree

Cheyenne Mountain Zoo (Colorado Springs, CO)

How could we help our client inspire kids about the importance of trees to wildlife and people? Make the exhibit a tree, of course!

Targeted at a young audience, our graphics and low-maintenance interactives sit within a 30-foot-diameter, two-level tree. ECOS designed the tree and coordinated its construction, along with interpretive elements such as a life-size sculpture of a mother bear and her cubs, and a hero-size ADA-accessible “Be a baby owl” nest.

Responsive, creative, thoughtful, ARTISTIC, good managers of time and budget… that’s what I think of ECOS. The quality of their product for the dollars is exceptional.
