ROYAL OAK, MICH (WXYZ) – The holidays may be over but the fun is just getting started for the animals at the Detroit Zoo.

Many of their habitats will be “spruced up” this week – beginning Wednesday, Jan. 13, 2016 – when they are given recycled holiday evergreen trees to play with, roll around, strip and tear apart.

Detroit Zoo staff will provide the animals with Fraser fir and blue spruce trees donated by Home Depot and Lowe’s stores in Madison Heights. The unpainted, untreated, never-decorated trees were accepted as part of a comprehensive animal care program at the Zoo that ensures animal habitats are ever-changing and appropriately complex.

There will be a scheduled distribution of the trees on Wednesday, Jan. 13, at the following times:

 10:30 a.m. – grizzly bears
 11 a.m. – arctic foxes
 11:30 a.m. – polar bears
 Noon – bison
 12:30 p.m. – wolverines

The Detroit Zoo is located at 8450 W 10 Mile Rd, in Royal Oak. For hours, prices, directions and other information, call 248-541-5717 or visit http://detroitzoo.org/
