Subagh reflects on exploration, support of watershed

Chautauqua community member Subagh Singh Khalsa will present “Water, a Very Personal Matter: Exploring and Preserving the Watershed” for the Chautauqua Men’s Club at 9 a.m. Friday at the United Methodist House.

“In 2006, the year after Katrina hit New Orleans, I stood on a hill top near here, looked down on Chautauqua Lake and realized I could navigate by kayak from Chautauqua to the Gulf of Mexico,” Subagh said. “After some deliberation I decided to do the trip, and did, raising money for Habitat for Humanity and the Watershed Conservancy.

“Along the way I saw the degradation of the rivers and, when I returned, I began exploring our watershed, discovering here the source of some of that degradation.”
