UW-Madison librarians make a new accessory for Bucky Badger

Bucky Badger is sporting some new threads on the UW-Madison campus, and he looks nice and warm.

UW-Madison librarians knitted a large scarf to put on the Bucky Badger statue, called the “Well Red” statue, in Alumni Park.

The scarf was presented at an event for the Wisconsin Alumni Association, which was meant to welcome students back to campus after winter break. Classes began this week. Students were able to get their picture taken with Bucky in his new scarf.

The “Well Red” Bucky statue can be found on Langdon Street between the Memorial Union and the Red Gym. Alumni Park opened in October 2017, and contains statues and displays like Bucky that honor alumni and symbols associated with the university.
