Want a Christmas tree that will benefit salmon after the holidays?
The Adopt A Stream Foundation will rent live Christmas trees for $35 on Saturday, December 15, between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. at the Northwest Stream Center in Snohomish County’s McCollum Park (600–128th Street SE, Everett. For driving directions, visit http://www.streamkeeper.org/aasf/Contact.html).
There will be over 200 tree selections that include Sitka spruce, western red cedar and Douglas fir.
Most trees will be 3- to 4-feet high.
Directions on how to keep your trees live and healthy will be provided.
Live trees that are returned after the holidays to the Adopt A Stream Foundation will be planted in the new year next to salmon streams in the local area.
“This is a fun event for the whole family,” says foundation director Tom Murdoch. “Kids will enjoy getting their picture taken with Sammy the Salmon in his Santa hat, and there is going to be a 10 percent discount at the Northwest Stream Center Nature store for last minute shopping.”
Murdoch advises that everyone who rents a tree also gets a lot of satisfaction knowing that their tree will be planted next to a salmon stream ... those trees will hold soil in place and, as they grow, will provide a lot of shade that will help keep the streams cool for salmon.
It’s a good idea to get there early as it is “first come, first served.”
