Christmas Tree Recycling

1/6/2023 | 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. 15, 2023. Park staff and fisheries biologists from the Missouri Department of Conservation will sink the donated 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.

For more information, contact the park office at 636-528-7247.  

Event Dates: Dec. 25, 2022 - Jan. 15, 2023
Event Times: 8 a.m. - 8 p.m.
