Arbor Day
Spring has sprung and Bexley has started to bloom once again. This year, on Arbor Day (April 30) and all April long, we are celebrating with different community events that are fun for everyone! Whether you’re eager to get outside and explore the Bexley Arboretum, participate in a fun community wide scavenger hunt with the Bexley Public Library, get to know our Talking Tree, Treeodore, or visit our wonderful Bexley Fairy Garden at the South Community Gardens - we have an event just for you! Join the City of Bexley, Bexley Public Library and Bexley Community Foundation in celebrating Arbor Day throughout the month of April in Bexley!
