There is a saying that Chautauqua would be nothing without its lake, which is perhaps the heart of the Institution. As biologist Rick Constantino points out, that heart would be nothing without its kidneys.
“Let’s take it to the woods.”
“Is there a view of the lake through the trees?” is the topic for today’s Lake Walk. Meet Rick Constantino at 6:30 p.m. at the Heinz Fitness Center on South Lake Drive, below the Youth Activities Center.
Trees not only contribute to the aesthetic appearance of yards, neighborhoods and communities, but also provide necessary shade and shelter from the sun. At 12:15 p.m. today, the Bird, Tree & Garden Club will present a Brown Bag lecture by Jim Chatfield, titled “Ten Trees That Thrive in Western New York and Why,” in Smith Wilkes Hall.
