From TU Oregon Council Chair Tom Wolf: The Tualatin chapter of TU is in the third year of collecting discarded Christmas trees to be placed in the Necanicum River as woody debris in salmon rearing areas. The Bill Monroe article does a nice job in describing the program. Check out the article here.
So please thing about donating your tree on Jan. 4, 11 or 18 at the donation locations mentioned in the article. And more volunteers are needed to staff the donation sites on the fore mentioned dates. If you are interested and available, contact Mike Ellis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
