CW Arbor Day Celebration April 28


National Barber Museum to host event April 28

The city of Canal Winchester and the Canal Winchester Historical Society’s National Barber Museum will come together Friday, April 28th at 3:00 p.m. to celebrate Arbor Day at the National Barber Museum, 135 Franklin St. 

Mayor Michael Ebert will present an Arbor Day Proclamation prior to the commemorative tree planting.  The celebration is open to the public and will last approximately one hour.  As long as there are no severe weather warnings, Arbor Day activities will proceed rain or shine. 

“We want to help teach the public about the importance of tree canopy coverage and its effect on slowing and filtering storm water movement in urban areas,” said Dick Miller, Canal Winchester’s Urban Forester.

The city coordinates Arbor Day events through the Street Tree Advisory Board, a five member panel of Canal Winchester residents who have worked to preserve, protect and enhance trees and plants throughout the community since the early 1990s.
