New Man in Town

By Lee Lattimer

Well, to be accurate, it’s not “in town”, it’s at the Arboretum. And I’m not exactly new to the Arboretum. But I do have a new position. For several years I have had many roles here: historian, Board member, Communications Committee member. And for even longer I have been a volunteer. You probably have seen me at the plant sales, 5Ks, and other events. In my capacity as one of several “traffic controllers” at plant sales, I might even have told you where to “park it”! And now, as of last October, I have served the Arboretum as office manager, taking over the position from Nancy Stuebner, who held the position for 10 years.

The George Landis Arboretum is very special to me. I enjoy walking its trails and examining its plants and wildlife, especially the birds. But more importantly, I admire all the people that make Landis such a great institution. Everyone I’ve encountered here is dedicated to making the Arboretum the best it can be. And I look forward to helping them achieve that goal.

My time in the office varies, but usually I am available Mondays and Thursdays starting at 11 AM. During the busy spring and summer months I will also be there on Tuesdays, same time. But I check the phone messages (518-875-6935) and emails (info@landisarboretum.org) regularly, so don’t hesitate to get in touch with me.
