Guide by Cell Technology in the Arboretum

Visitors to the Susan Jacobs Arboretum will notice something new as they make their way through the gardens. There are now placards at eight different planting areas that are designated as stops on the cell phone tour known as "Guide By Cell".

The placards have a phone number to call and a pin number, followed by the pound (#) sign. Once connected the listener will receive details about the particular garden at which they are standing.

The "voice of the garden" is Linda Cobb, a long-time supporter of the Susan Jacobs Arboretum and avid gardener known around Spartanburg for her support of multiple garden clubs as well as the University's annual Arbor Day celebration.
