Recycle your Christmas Tree
For many families bringing in a live Christmas tree is a tradition. But just a few days from now, you will want it out of the house and even out of the yard. Catoctin Wildlife Preserve and Zoo will be accepting recycled trees and using them as tasty treats and toys for their zoo animals.
IMPORTANT NOTES BEFORE DROPPING OFF YOUR TREE!
We can only recycle natural trees. NO trees that have been sprayed with “snow”, scents or treated with chemicals. We cannot recycle trees with tinsel or other decorations still intact. No artificial trees, only live trees without decorations, tinsel or other man made materials.
Help us make this a success. Remember these trees will be used for shelters, treats and enrichment for the animals so be aware of their safety. Thank you for helping us give them a happy and healthy holiday treat!
