Conservation Sudbury will be pointing the way to a fuller experience for users of the Lake Laurentian Conservation Area.

General Manager Carl Jorgensen says new signage will help people navigate the 970-hectare preserve in the middle of the city.

Existing signage has often been slapped together, Jorgensen said, and were often made of foam core boards and even paper wrapped in plastic.
