Recycle your Christmas tree and your admission is free
Through Jan. 19
ROCKWELL — Your house cat isn’t the only feline that loves to play with the Christmas tree. Turns out lions, tigers and jaguars love to play too.
Recycle your tree while making a tiger happy. Our 11th annual Christmas Tree Recycle runs through Sunday, Jan. 19. Bring your real Christmas tree to Tiger World and receive one free admission per tree.
Our big cats love playing with the trees and use them as toys. Please donate chemical free natural trees with NO ornamentation, NO flocking, and NO tinsel. Trees with tinsel cannot be accepted. Please haul your tree down to the admissions area for one free admission.
