Last week, SPN offered one suggested exit strategy for your now-retiring Christmas tree, via the Christmas tree chipping fundraiser, Jan 5: Juan de Fuca Search and Rescue.
We’ve been alerted to another option, which lets you re-purpose your Christmas tree at Wild ARC in Metchosin.
From the Facebook page:
“Now that the Christmas is over, consider giving your live, cut Christmas tree a second life as enrichment for our wild patients!
“Trees (clear of any ornaments, tinsel, or other bits that critters can get tangled in) can be dropped off at our centre at 1020 Malloch Road between 8AM – 4:30PM every day.
“We are not able to arrange tree pickups, but if you’re able to find a ride for your conifer, our wild patients will very much appreciate the added greenery!
