This year’s Arbor Day at Bellefontaine Cemetery and Arboretum will be observed on Saturday, April 15, from 9:00 a.m. to noon, at the Willow Entrance off W. Florissant. Staff and volunteers will give away free trees to visitors during this time. Plant material may be limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Join us for a free tree and then enjoy a casual walk or drive around the arboretum. Our 314 acres contain over 9,500 woody trees and shrubs representing over 560 unique taxa, including species, selections, and varieties. Bellefontaine is a Level III Accredited Arboretum, one of several proud botanical institutions in the St. Louis area.
Tours are free, however, donations to the Friends of Bellefontaine Cemetery are gratefully accepted.
To make a gift to the Friends of Bellefontaine, email Joe Shields or call our office at 314-381-0750.
