Looking for a unique way to celebrate Christmas and a great way to bring in the new year? Consider renting a “Live Christmas Tree” from the Adopt A Stream Foundation. “We will have 200 live Sitka Spruce, Western Red Cedar and Douglas fir trees for rent at the Northwest Stream Center on December 17, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.,” says Loren Brokaw, ecologist.
“Trees that are brought back in good condition will then be planted next to salmon streams in the spring ...”
While you are looking at the trees, you may have an opportunity to have a conversation with “Sammy the Salmon.” Each rental tree will come with directions on how to care for the tree during the holidays. The rental price is $25 for 3-foot trees and $30 for 4-foot trees. Driving directions can be found from the contact section of the Adopt A Stream Foundation website: www.streamkeeper.org. If you have questions, please call the Adopt A Stream Foundation at (425) 316-8592.
