Colorado Parks and Wildlife is setting up a Christmas tree drop off point in the Pueblo area to recycle Christmas trees into quail habitat. The trees will be used to create artificial brush piles to improve the small game habitat on local state wildlife areas.
Collection dates are Jan. 2 through 15 at the Colorado Parks and Wildlife Pueblo Service Center archery range parking lot located at 600 Reservoir Road.
Wildlife officials ask that people remove all ornaments and tinsel prior to bringing the trees to the collection site.
For more information, call the Pueblo Service Center at 719-561-5300.
Directions to the collection site: From the intersection of Thatcher Blvd. (Highway 96) and Pueblo Boulevard, go west on Highway 96 for approximately 2.75 miles to Reservoir Road; turn right and travel 0.10 miles to the archery range parking lot and place the trees in the area marked by signs.
