The Adopt A Stream Foundation is kicking off the season with its annual Holiday Trees for Salmon event from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 3-4, at the Northwest Stream Center, 600 128th St. SE in Everett's McCollum Park.
"There will be a great selection of live and wild 3- to 5-foot-high ($40, $60, $100) Sitka Spruce, Western Red Cedar, and Douglas Fir trees that are in pots," said Adopt A Stream Foundation Director Tom Murdoch. "After the holidays, all trees returned to the Northwest Stream Center will be planted next to local salmon streams. And everyone will get the good feeling that comes with knowing their Holiday Tree for Salmon will be doing great things for the Northwest environment long into the future ... a wonderful memory of this holiday season."
The event, which includes an Artisan Bazar on Saturday, Dec. 3, only, will continue Tuesdays through Saturdays until Dec. 23. As a holiday bonus, there is free admission to the Elevated Forest and Wetland Walk through the month of December. Visitors also can do their holiday shopping at the Nature
Store where proceeds benefit environmental education and salmon stream restoration.
Reservations are required and can be made at https://www.picktime.com/NWSCReservations. Reservations open on a weekly basis and are made available on Monday afternoons. Walk-ins will be accommodated on a space-available basis. For driving directions see https://www.streamkeeper.org/contact-us

Benefits include free entry to the Northwest Stream Center Nature Trail for 2023, discounts to 2023 Streamkeeper Academy events, and 10% discounts on purchases at the Northwest Stream Center Nature Store.
Proceeds from Holiday Trees for Salmon sales benefit the Adopt A Stream Foundation's environmental education and salmon stream restoration programs.
