The beautifully decorated Christmas trees at the Ravalli County Museum are being auctioned in a silent auction process that ends this weekend.

Museum Director Tamar Stanley said a few of the trees have a patriotic theme and will be directed to military families who maybe are separated due to overseas duty this season.

The trees each have a different theme - Christmas cards, forest animals, glittering ornaments, cowboy culture and more. You can see them when you go to the "Cowboy Christmas" evening Friday, December 1, starting at 6 p.m.
