Attracting Attention

By Lee Lattimer

Many peo­ple dis­cov­er the Arbore­tum when they notice the signs for Lan­dis on Route 20 in Esper­ance. Recent­ly our reach has been extend­ed to Route 88. Whether you are dri­ving east or west, just before Duanes­burg the Attrac­tions sig­nage now includes a bright white emblem stat­ing George Lan­dis Arbore­tum” with the I (Heart) NY” logo. 

Small­er images of the same sign appear on or at the end of the ramp (point­ing towards Route 20) and at Route 20 point­ing right (pic­tured). These not only attract new vis­i­tors, but also make it eas­i­er for those com­ing to our sched­uled events.
