Every year, the USDA Forest Service selects one of its 154 national forests to provide a tree to appear on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol building for the holiday season. The Six Rivers national Forest in partnership with nonprofit partner Choose Outdoors will bring this special gift from California to Washington, D.C. for the 2021 holiday season. The Tree will make a special appearance in our very own hometown of Eureka, Ca on October 29th from 4:30- 6:00 PM at the Madaket Plaza/ gravel parking lot.
Festivities during the tree's visit to Eureka on October 29th will include remarks by the Mayor of Eureka, music with Humboldt Lumberjacks Marching Band, hot cocoa and cider, warm cookies, gift drive for toys for tots, and more.
Activities are open to the public and free for all to enjoy while following local health guidelines.
Thank you to all our sponsors to make this event possible, City of Eureka, College of the Redwoods, Toys for Tots, and Eureka Main Street.
