Arbor Day Ceremony

The Village of Scarsdale will hold its annual Arbor Day observance on April 26 at 1 P.M. (rain or shine) in Harcourt Woods. Meet at the wood chip path at the south end of the High School parking lots along Brewster Road.

Sea of Green: Cut the Yawwwwn

Turf grass is boring. Really, it is -- it's fall asleep uninteresting. It's even worse than watching paint dry. But alas, an expanse of turf grass is also a living canvas awaiting your artful brush strokes. Indeed, Scarsdalians, it's time to cut the yawn. Transform that monotonous blanket of green! Here's just the ticket: The Native Plant Center at Westchester Community College is holding their 20th Annual Native Plant Sale on Saturday, 4/27, from 10AM to 1PM. You'll go blooming crazy over the 100 available, including every prior Plant of the Year!
