Trim-a-Tree at Potter Park Zoo

Trim-a-Tree is sold out for 2023. Thank you for all who supported the zoo through this program!

Looking for a new tradition with family, friends, or the work team while celebrating the season? Sponsor a tree at the zoo! The Trim-a-Tree program is a unique way to support Potter Park Zoo and its mission of inspiring conservation of animals and the natural world this winter season.

Enjoy an outing to the zoo by decorating your tree. Be creative! Many tree sponsors theme their decorations with their business or organization. Families and friends enjoy the quality time decorating together too! Don’t want to decorate? You have the option to choose to have zoo staff do the decorating for you.

Your tree will have a sign to show all guests your support and commitment to the community. This is a wonderful opportunity for businesses to demonstrate their initiatives to the thousands of guests that attend annually. As an additional thank you, you’ll receive six complimentary passes to Wonderland of Lights and your name or business will be listed on the zoo’s Wonderland of Lights event page as Trim-a-Tree sponsors.

The trees will be on display during Wonderland of Lights Nov. 18 – Dec. 23, 2023 at Potter Park Zoo. After the event, the trees will be used as enrichment for select zoo animals.

Completed forms can be emailed to or mailed to Potter Park Zoological Society, Attn: Trim-a-Tree, 1301 S. Pennsylvania Ave., Lansing, MI 48912
