Give your real Christmas tree a second chance by recycling it. Jake and Amanda Langeslag, owners of Goat Dispatch, will use your trees and wreaths as a treat for their goat herd during the winter months, keeping your trees out of the landfill and providing enrichment for the goats. Donations to River Bend are encouraged for those dropping off a tree. Donations will be used to support our Restoration Club's land management work.
Recycle your tree/wreath by dropping it off in the marked area in River Bend's main parking lot (near the Interpretive Center). Trees and wreaths must be bare and free of ornaments, decorations, wires, metal, and stands, and must not be flocked or artificial. No tree pick-up is being offered. You may make your tree recycling donation online on our Christmas tree donation page.
Goats from Goat Dispatch will be at River Bend's WinterFest event on January 21st for participants to meet.
