Fill the Hill

October 20 — 5:00 pm to October 21 — 5:00 pm

A pink flamingo lawn ornament wears a party hat.

For 24 hours, every gift made to the La Follette School and other areas of campus will add one flamingo to Bascom Hill.


Make a gift

In 1979, students and other passersby were treated to the sight of 1,008 plastic pink flamingos placed on Bascom Hill by student government pranksters from the Pail and Shovel Party. Ever since, these lawn ornaments have become a treasured tradition of the UW.
