Spring time at Bernheim is a BIG DEAL!

If you are looking to celebrate spring in a BIG way, plan a trip to Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest in Clermont, Ky to visit Forest Giants in a Giant Forest, a trio of giant forest trolls that are the work of renowned Danish artist Thomas Dambo. Nestled inside the vast forest block of Bernheim, the whimsical creatures are sculpted from recycled and repurposed materials, mostly recovered from the area within the arboretum and areas around Shepherdsville and surrounding Bullitt County near Louisville. The trolls were constructed from recycled wood from pallets and bourbon barrel staves salvaged from Bourbon Trail distilleries, fallen trees and scraps from the nearby Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory, and are a reminder of the importance of protecting the natural environment.
