WILDNorth, a rescue and rehabilitation facility is taking in old Christmas trees for a good cause.
WILDNorth is giving Parkland County residents a chance to get rid of their old trees.
The facility is dedicated to the rehabilitation and rescue of wildlife in Alberta and they are now accepting donations of old Christmas trees, garlands and wreaths. The trees must be real, fully undecorated and under eight feet tall.
The society says the real trees can enrich their wildlife enclosures which can assist with the rehabilitation of the bird species they have at the facility.
They do not pick up the trees but they can be dropped off at the facility which is located between Spruce Grove and Acheson just off Township Road 534 and Range Road 271. The trees can be dropped off on their front lawn near a wooden sign post.
The facility adds that all the animals benefit from the tree donations as they provide some enrichment to the rehabilitation facilities.
