The Bruemmer Park Zoo in Kewaunee is getting a makeover. The historic zoo is starting a master plan that will be implemented over the next few years. The plans will be revealed at the upcoming celebration event on June 3rd. Zoological Society of Kewaunee County President Pam Zander explains the rebuilding project that will start in earnest this summer.
Zander says that the zoo is waiting to add animals until after the renovation plan is completed. Besides the Bobcats, the zoo houses peacocks, arctic foxes, sheep, goats, deer, and pheasants. The Bruemmer Park Zoo will also be unveiling an 80-foot high metal giraffe called “Melvin” at the event on June 3rd with a ribbon-cutting at 12:30 pm.
