Christmas Trees for Critters

WINCHESTER SPRINGS — The popular North Dundas petting zoo operation continues the Yuletide tradition of accepting cast-off Christmas trees as munchies for its menagerie of goats, llamas and other critters.

The proprietors simply ask that trees be free of decorations. Leave them at the “safe, no contact” drop-off site at Vanderlaand the Barnyard Zoo, 11827 Oak Valley Rd. (County Rd. 5).
