I lucked out when I hired Cleuson, the caretaker at Bosque Santa Lucia. To my surprise he has a good hand at making signs and he takes the initiative to experiment with different ways of labeling trees and plants. To boot, he's creative in making use of old paints and leftover wood for doing the job. The sign in the attached image is one pointing out a mahogany tree. Nomenclature of tropical trees is extremely complicated, so these signs at the entranceway and around the reception center are very helpful for guides conducting tours. Our Bosque tours, by the way, are mostly during the cruise ship season between November and March.
