US Capitol Christmas Tree Visits Libby
November 14, 2017 @ 9:30 am - 10:00 am
Every year, a different National Forest is selected to provide a tree to appear on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol for the Christmas season. The Kootenai National Forest in partnership with nonprofit Choose Outdoors will bring this special gift from Montana to Washington, D.C. for the 2017 season, involving more than 15 communities along the way including an appearance in Libby!
The tree will be cut in November and prepared for the more than 2,000-mile expedition, which includes a series of community celebrations and culminates with the official tree lighting in early December. Smaller companion trees also will be provided to decorate offices inside of the U.S. Capitol building and other sites throughout Washington, D.C., along with ornaments created by Montanans.
