Bucks Beautiful – ‘Keeping Bucks County Beautiful!’

Bucks Beautiful is a local grass roots 501(c)3 non-profit organization that coordinates events, community projects, educational programs and partners with like-minded community organizations to develop sustainable landscapes that are not only attractive but will support and foster a healthier environment. Since 1990 we have worked to enhance the local landscape for residents and visitors alike by beautifying our towns, schools, parks, roadsides and pathways throughout Bucks County.

Our programs include:

Replant Bucks – Bucks Beautiful is leading the way in facilitating the reforestation of our local communities. Due to the recent hazardous effects of disease and insects on the tree canopy in Bucks County, entire stands of dead trees have been cut down. With support from community donations RePlant Bucks continues to plant native trees at local parks, historical sites, schools and other non-profit facilities. The plantings could not have been done without the help and support from the following local landscape firms: Bucks Country Gardens, Gale Nurseries Inc., Hugh A. Marshall Landscape, Indigenous Ingenuities, LLC, Professional Landscape Services, Inc., Mitchell Traumuller of Traumuller’s Nursery and the students from Delaware Valley University’s Soil Conservation Club. Donations of any amount are welcome to help reach the goal of planting 10,000 trees for our future generations.

Educational Lecture Series – Bucks Beautiful has partnered with the Henry Schmieder Arboretum at Delaware Valley University to present spring and fall series of info-packed lectures led by regionally renowned gardening experts. Lectures are held at the Life Science Building. Speakers and their topics can be found on the Bucks Beautiful website.

Bulbs for Bucks Daffodil Tour – April through May – Bucks Beautiful has planted more than 1,500,000 daffodil bulbs in public areas throughout Bucks County. This past fall, the second-grade class at Bridge Valley Elementary School took part in our school planting program helping to plant over 500 of the 5,000 daffodils planted at the school. Enjoy the beautiful daffodil displays throughout Bucks County during the springtime bloom season.
