Thomas Dambo is a Danish artist whose work you can see more of on his website. His team began work on February 20th with his team so that you will be able to visit and find these forest giants throughout the spring. Also, you will be able to visit while they are creating the giants and see the team in progress while they create these giants. It is now open! The project will be called “Forest Giants in a Giant Forest.” The giants are expected to be at Bernheim Forest for 3-5 years.

Check out this video below to see his work. What a fun scavenger hunt this will be for families visiting Bernheim Forest!
