If you live in the Kansas City and you would like to have a live Christmas tree this year, Kansas City WildLands* is here to help. Saturday, December 8th, 10 - 3 PM at Shawnee Mission Park, KCWL will be hosting an event where you can cut down your very own Christmas tree and walk away with it for a mere suggested donation of $10.
KCWL is a coalition to restore, conserve and manage remnant wild areas. Part of what they do is restoring native prairies and when you take home a tree, you'll also be helping restore prairie at Shawnee Mission Park. This is way better than picking up a tree for $25-45 at your local hardware store.
