Now that Christmas is over and you start to take the decorations down, you may think to yourself, “What am I going to do with this tree?” Instead of placing the tree on the curb (which will eventually end up in a landfill), bring it to one of the several “Bring One for the Chipper” tree recycling events. This annual Georgia Christmas tree recycling program has recycled almost
5 million trees. The mulch created from the recycled trees has been used for playgrounds, local government beautification projects, and individual yards.
A new, permanent exhibition has opened at Fernbank Museum of Natural History. Children will be able to learn while having fun in the Fernbank NatureQuest. The 7,000 square-foot, $8 million expansion allows children to interact with nature. Kids will have a blast exploring the multi-level clubhouse, learning about fish in the virtual river, seeing what animals made their way through the exhibit and so much more.
Tickets and information for the Fernbank NatureQuest Exhibit are available at 404.929.6300 or www.fernbankmuseum.org. Fernbank is located at 767 Clifton Road NE in Atlanta
