This year’s 56 county Christmas trees are now not only on display in the Capitol.The project, which was started 7 years ago by Governor Brian Schweitzer and First Lady Nancy Schweitzer, showcases ornaments made by school children across the state.
This year’s theme – A Homegrown Christmas, was inspired by the First Lady’s new Nancy’s Garden project. Nancy's Garden provides a gardening experience for every 4th grade student by supplying grow boxes, seeds, lesson plans and instructions for each classroom.
The Christmas trees can also be viewed online at www.governor.mt.gov
