Orange Gnome Project

Making mischief throughout the Wicker Park Bucktown neighborhood’s trees and planters in celebration of Arbor Day, these little guys are here to heighten awareness and respect for the urban environment. Sponsored by the Wicker Park Bucktown Special Service Area (SSA) #33, the gnomes and tree tags are to educate residents about the positive impact of urban trees on the business district and community.

Please enjoy our visitors- count as many as you can, take a selfie and when their time is done here, feel free to adopt a gnome to stand guard at your business. If you do, send us a snapshot of him in his new home.
