Have a Fourth Grader? You Get a Free Christmas Tree This Year!
When it comes to the Christmas tree is your family an real tree or fake tree family? If you're #TeamRealTree your tree could be free in 2020!
I so badly wish that hubby and I could be on your team, but the truth is we have a long hair cat who has an absolute fascination with the Christmas tree and well...the idea of cleaning sap out of him when he tries to climb in it just makes me cringe. So, #TeamFakeTree and a Scentsy burner full of wax that smells like the real deal it is.
#TeamRealTree people, how into picking out your Christmas tree are you? If you answered "well, it's fun walking through the tree lot" move along. This offer is only for families who love loading up the family and going to chop down their own Christmas Tree just like the Griswolds.
The Boise National Forest participates in the "Every Kid Outdoors" program open to fourth-graders across the state of Idaho. Signing up for a pass lets these kids and their families adventure outdoors through over 2,000 federal lands and waters for free. The goal is to help inspire these kids to put down their tablets and video games and go become the next generation of outdoor enthusiasts.
One of the perks of being a fourth-grader signed up for the program is a FREE Christmas tree permit to share with your parents. To get their permits, kids can sign up for the "Every Kid Outdoors" pass by completing a short, educational activity HERE.
Now that child has obtained their voucher number, they can go visit recreation.gov starting November 16, choose "purchase a Christmas tree," check "Every Kid Outdoors" and enter their voucher number at check out. (There is an online processing fee of $2.50. Call it #2020problems.)
That permit allows the family to cut down one tree up to 12 ft. tall in the Boise National Forest and take it home to decorate as part of their Christmas celebration. The permits are good November 21 through Christmas Day.
