Goshen’s forester to give lecture

SYRACUSE — Aaron Sawatsky-Kingsley, Goshen’s forester, will be speaking from 10:30 a.m. to noon Saturday. His talk is part of the Go Go Green lecture series hosted by the Chautauqua-Wawasee organization.

The lecture will take place in the Oakwood Chapel at Oakwood Park in Syracuse. Sawatsky-Kingsley will be speaking on “A Story of Trees: People, Economics and Connection.”

Sawatsky-Kingsley comes to the urban forestry profession by way of an English degree, working in a bakery and living with his family on 10 re-forested acres north of Goshen. While he believes that his non-traditional forestry background has advantages, he recently completed a master of science degree in natural resource management from Slippery Rock University. He has been the urban forester in Goshen for seven years, cultivating a small municipal nursery, working with school groups on environmental education, creating an accurate tree inventory, maintaining existing public trees, applying for grants and writes a bi-monthly column for The Goshen News, “The Naturalized Mid-American.”

From time to time he plays in a rock band with his close friends. He is married with three children.

There is no cost to attend this event thanks to donors and sponsors. All “Go Go Green” lectures are free and open to the public.

Other sessions in this Saturday morning series include:

• July 20 — “Sense of Place” with Paul D. Steury, professor of environmental studies at Goshen College and a columnist for The Goshen News.

• July 27 — “Applied Concepts of ‘Going Green’” with Luke Gascho, the director of the Merry Lea Environmental Learning Center.

• On Aug. 3 — Wawasee Area Conservancy Foundation’s Lake, Talk & Eats session on invasive species.  It is sponsored by WACF and will be held at the WACF Education Center from 9 to 11 a.m.

There has been discussion at West Goshen Elementary School to require mandatory student uniforms in the future. How do you feel about the prospect of mandatory student uniforms in a public school environment?

I think it’s an excellent idea that is way overdue
I think it’s a bad idea and would be restrictive for students and parents.
