Two displays were commissioned to replace live plants that did not survive well. The Brooks Range gallery now has a miniature alpine flower garden, and the North Slope gallery features a tussock, a type of sedge that provides both food and shelter for animals. Gary Brees of Brees Studio fabricated and installed the displays in August 2012.
