The Sawtooth National Recreation Area visitor center will be open on Saturday, Dec. 7 and Dec. 14 to provide the public an opportunity to buy Christmas tree permits.  The office will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

     A permit allows a family to cut one tree up to 20 feet tall.  There is a limit of one tree per family or organization, for a cost of $10.

     Additionally, in support of Every Kid Outdoors, the Sawtooth National Forest will offer one free Christmas tree permit to fourth-graders who present a valid paper or durable Every Kid Outdoors pass. The fourth-grader must be present at the time the permit is issued. This is only available at Sawtooth National Forest offices.

     Permits are valid until Dec. 25.
