Christmas Tree Recycling

12/25/2021 to 1/16/2022 | Cuivre River State Park | Troy, MO

Give the gift of habitat for fish this year by recycling your live Christmas trees. Cuivre River State Park will accept live Christmas trees until Jan. 16, 2022. Park staff and fisheries biologists from the Missouri Department of Conservation will sink the donated Christmas trees in Lake Lincoln in an effort to improve fish habitat. By providing structure and cover for fish, the trees will improve fishing opportunities for park visitors. The drop-off point will be marked with a sign at the back of the visitor center parking lot.

This is an ongoing cooperative project between Cuivre River State Park and the Missouri Department of Conservation.
