New Year's Resolutions

By Wilma Jozwiak

The New Year is here, and with it comes a tra­di­tion of mak­ing resolutions.

If you’ve been at Lan­dis this year, you’ve noticed the out­comes of some of the Arboretum’s res­o­lu­tions for 2015: dri­ve­ways and park­ing lots have been improved, new gates have been installed, and ponds have been dredged to remove inva­sive plants.

We have res­o­lu­tions for 2016 too: stain­ing the barn and new shed built in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Boy Scout Troop 501, final­ly (fin­gers crossed!) get­ting the bath­rooms installed in the Meet­ing House, and mak­ing impor­tant repairs to the Farm House. 

We’d like to invite you to make some Lan­dis-spe­cif­ic res­o­lu­tions for 2016 as well. 

Per­haps you’ll make a res­o­lu­tion to vis­it once a month, or to make this the year you final­ly attend a Pub­lic Star Par­ty, go snow­shoe­ing at a Sec­ond Sun­day Snow­shoe event, or enjoy a con­cert in our Full Moon music series. Maybe you’ll resolve to vol­un­teer at the Arbore­tum, or if you already vol­un­teer, to try some­thing new, like help­ing with prop­a­ga­tion in our green­house. Per­haps you’ll increase your mem­ber­ship lev­el, mov­ing from Basic Indi­vid­ual to Fam­i­ly, or from Fam­i­ly to Enhanced. Or per­haps you’ll make a tar­get­ed dona­tion to help with one of Lan­dis’ res­o­lu­tions, or an unre­strict­ed dona­tion just to help ensure Lan­dis remains an impor­tant resource for the community. 

What­ev­er you resolve, we hope to see you at Lan­dis dur­ing 2016!
