Party for the Planet at The Milwaukee County Zoo
sponsored by American Transmission Co.

Join Melinda Myers and help her plant the zoo’s pollinator garden! Add some season long color and nectar for the pollinators by planting a few pollinator favorites in the garden sponsored by ATC. You’ll help attract pollinators for years to come. Located just inside the Family Farm, across from the hippos!
Pick up some free Tall tickseed seed packets and Grow Smart planting guides for your own garden.



Trees and shrubs are an important part of the landscape. But trees, shrubs and transmission lines can be an unsafe combination. Transmission lines can sway or sag, and tall or nearby vegetation can compromise the safety and reliability of the electric transmission system. American Transmission Co.’s Grow Smart program helps property owners and communities identify low-growing, beautiful, native vegetation that can be planted the smart way – a safe distance from transmission line rights-of-way.
