Rent-a-Christmas Tree, Save the Salmon
Just heard on King 5 TV news this morning:
Today only, 10 – 2 pm, people can rent a 5′ tall native conifer for a Christmas Tree, through the Adopt-a-Stream Foundation! The trees can be picked up at McCollumn Park in south Snohomish County today only. There’s a $20.00 fee, including a $10 deposit when trees are returned in good shape in the spring. The organization plans to plant the returned trees in the spring along local streams to promote healthy salmon habitat.

This is a great idea! If you can’t do it this year, we should try to adopt a similar program for Seattle and Carkeek Park in years ahead.
