The Christmas tree adorning the lawn of the U.S. Capitol this year will be chosen from a national forest here in North Carolina, and the public is invited to help make the 4,000 ornaments needed to decorate the tree.

The Cradle of Forestry is offering free admission July 23 and 24 to anyone who makes a homemade ornament to send to D.C. The free admission days are being held in conjunction with “Christmas in July” festivities at the Cradle, including Santa, caroling and ornament decorating.
