On January 7th & 8th from 10am-4pm at the Outlet Mall, Seaside’s Troop 642 will be collecting Christmas Trees for their annual winter fundraiser. A $4 donation will be collected for each tree dropped off and $5 for trees picked up. To schedule a pick up, please contact (503) 717-9563. Please ensure your trees are free of all decorations including tinsel. Flocked trees can not be accepted.
This year, Troop 642 will be partnering with the Necanicum Watershed Council, Trout Unlimited and the North Coast Land Conservancy to turn those trees into fish habitats.
