Unveiling the Slabsides Entrance Sign Burroughs Drive and Floyd Ackert Road at Noon. Refreshments following at Slabsides
Check out the long-awaited entrance signs for the John Burroughs Nature Sanctuary when then are unveiled at Slabsides Day. Designed and built by Rob Davis of Romancing the Woods in Saugerties, the twig-work echoes railing and decorative elements of Burroughs’ Slabsides. These signs are part of our project to improve the gateway experience for visitors and set a rustic tone as they enter the Nature Sanctuary.
We are grateful to the Hudson River Valley National Heritage Area for its Heritage Development Grant. We are indebted to our members and friends for their generosity and to everyone who was part of our annual gala “In John Burroughs’ Front Yard” for their support.
REFRESHMENTS, including carrot cake from Jessica Winchell, will be served at Slabsides.
