birds, reptiles and amphibians and has many opinions of how we, as human beings, should address the natural world. He is a conservation biologist by training and by his own definition. He is a researcher, an author, a photographer, and a member of the local community. For the past seven years he has held the title of President of the Roger Tory Peterson Institute. His goal seems to be to inspire the next kid from Jamestown to see the connection between animal species, habitats, and people- much like Roger Tory Peterson inspired the habitants of his generation. To that end Leenders has authored a new book about the fauna of Costa Rica. This one, about the Reptiles of Costa Rica (August 2019) follows the publication of Amphibians of Costa Rica in 2016. His books aid others in identifying these groups of animals- “a tool to recognize” in his words. It is exciting to Leenders that those with whom he has shared his contact information send him photos from Costa Rica of reptiles and See “LEENDERS” Page 11

Publisher’s Word “Summer in Chautauqua Is a State of Mind”

gotten to this season. Our window of summer in this beautiful part of WNY may be short, but we have always been up to the challenge of packing in as much as we can during our weekends on the Lake. Between the Wine Trail, Chautauqua Institution, and our great restaurants and nightlife, summer life here in this part of NY is awesome. We’re blessed with amazing local artisans - music, dance, theatre, comedy, and aesthetic – all this is abundant in Chautauqua County. With so many summer fun things to do, does it leave us with any time to just unwind and enjoy It’s getting to be that time the scenery? of year where we all need to There are so many hidden look at what we haven’t quite gems to discover; that antique

shop, a new café, farmer’s markets showcasing our natural bounty. Have you been to Westfield lately? Such a cool place, blooming with new growth! Another great stop on your day to explore. Perhaps we can wait just a few more weeks for the things left undone. Un-glamorous as it may sound, fixing that screen, replacing the toilet, and installing a new faucet are all things that must be completed, but I guess procrastination can still be an option for just a tad longer… My advice to you is plan your work, work your plan, and take full advantage of being in the best summer spot in the state! Until next week… JZ

Camp Timbercrest Receives Books From Friends Of Timbercrest and Off The Beaten Path Bookstore

As volunteer coordinator of the Friends of Timbercrest, Jennifer Schlick (left) worked with Bob Lingle, owner of Off the Beaten Path Bookstore in Lakewood, N.Y., to build up the library of Camp Timbercrest. Here she is picking up some of the 60 new books that are now part of the library of this Girl Scout camp in Cattaraugus County, N.Y. Jamestown, N.Y. – Something magical happened when Camp Timbercrest celebrated its 50th anniversary as a Girl Scouts residence camp. The occasion in 2017 brought together many former campers and staffers. The energy and enthusiasm of the participants generated the creation of Friends of Timbercrest (FOT), a group of people who volunteer their time and/or their resources. Their mission is to preserve, care for, and

promote Camp Timbercrest so it will continue to be an inspiration for Girl Scouts for generations to come. Since that fateful gathering, Friends has partnered with the Girl Scouts of Western New York (GSWNY) Council to invest time and dollars in a variety of projects. The FOT has held two work parties per year since its formation. Folks come from as far away as Pittsburgh and Nashville to paint, clean, fell dead and dying trees, split and stack the wood, clear trails, and build bridges. Camp Timbercrest’s 700 acres is between Randolph and Steamburg in Cattaraugus County, N.Y., on the beautiful 31acre Keyser Lake, named for the camp’s first director. GSWNY offers a summer camp program and uses the camp for other day programs throughout the year. Troops and other groups can rent the facility for camping and daytime events. FOT Volunteer Coordinator Jennifer Schlick says, “What is so great about this group of Friends is that whenever I put the word out to them about a project, they rise to the challenge in a big way. Most of the Friends were former campers and staff who forged lasting relationships with the property, people, and traditions of Camp Timbercrest.” Schlick cited some examples of the Friends accomplishments. The trail around Keyser Lake had fallen into disuse

The layout is wonderful, going from a covered front porch with rockers, into an enclosed sitting area, then into the main living room area that has a cozy, full-windowed reading area off to the side. The spacious bedroom is off to the left, along with a small bathroom. The suite also has a mini-fridge, sink, microwave and Keurig. The location is great, as it’s literally within 100 yards of almost everything in Bemus Point. If you forgot your bike, you can even rent one right next door.

Sam Elliott Appreciation Day

Forte & Reg Lenna Celebrate The Actor, August 9th, Starting at 5 pm

Forte Restaurant and Reg Lenna Center for The Arts are celebrating the 75th birthday of legendary character actor Sam Elliott on August 9. Festivities begin at Forte at 5 pm with the official kickoff of Sam Elliott Appreciation Day. The event - established by Forte staff in 2017 - includes bar activities, dinner specials and extra stock of Coors Banquet beer. Mustache selfies are encouraged and patrons are invited to take

advantage of special Sam Elliott coloring pages and a postcard-creating station. “Sam Elliott’s appeal spans generations,” said Margaret Kaltenmeier, owner of Forte. “He’s got swagger and an effortless style, entertaining Americans for generations. I can’t imagine a better reason to celebrate someone’s existence!” At 10 pm, Reg Lenna Center for The Arts will screen the 1989, two-fisted cult classic “Road House”.

The oyster capital Paris was a little better off than London at this time. The French were (and still are) oyster fanatics. Although very stiff French oystering regulations over the course of previous decades had managed to keep the supply at a guarded level, the oyster supply was starting to dwindle rapidly by the middle of the 19th century. New York City, however, was hardly the only place famous for its oysters. Boston was also an “Oyster Mecca”. The Union Oyster House in Boston, likely the most famous oyster restaurant in the world, (I have been there) started doing business as a restaurant in 1826, making it the oldest restaurant in the City of Boston and oldest restaurant in continuous service in the United States. In 1796, Louis Phillipe, later to become the king of France, camped out on the second floor of this fine oyster house. In the first half of the 19th century, Daniel Webster was a regular at this place. To this very day they serve outstanding oysters. Dating back to 1837, the Massachusetts based Cotuit Oyster Company is one of the (if not the) oldest and most respected brand names of oysters in the United States. In Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania,

Cont. From Cover raw Oysters and Oysters Rockefeller. Although Oysters are not prevalent to the area many people enjoy them. There are over a hundred varieties of oysters, but did you know that all of these hail from only five species? There are Pacific Oysters (or Japanese Oyster), Kumamoto Oysters, European Flat Oysters, Atlantic Oysters and Olympia Oysters. Aside from the water they grow in, what makes these bivalves different from each other? Their shells. The European Flat has a large, straight shell with fine ridges, whereas the Pacific Oysters are smaller with wavy casings. Kumamotos are also smaller, and the shell is rounder and pale, which is similar to the Olympias, though this one has a smoother shell with a bit of iridescent coloring. Finally, the Atlantic species looks like a comma or tear drop and tends to be on the larger side. In the 19th century, New York City had joined the ranks of Paris and London as an international “oyster capital”. Oystermen from the states of New Jersey, New York and Connecticut were selling millions of Eastern Oysters to London each year, essentially propping up London as an oyster capital at this point,

Cont. From Cover McGreery from American Idol and an epic Queen Tribute band as well. So, get your dancing shoes on and start moving and grooving to this event that you will not want to miss. A great part about this festival is that it is set up in districts, so there is fun for everyone and it is easy to navigate. For example, making its debut to the Celebrate Erie Festival is the business district, which provides a retail space for local businesses to showcase what they are all about. This opportunity provides information on local trades including what the local companies do and jobs that they offer. Local jobs like laborers, plumbers, electricians and many other talented trades that can be very useful to families in this area. There will be demonstrations and informational tools as well. Another district that is new this year is the family district, which is great for every age. There are things for small children, and even young adults to interact and participate. There are hands on

even local dining options to show off their creative cultural delights. In attendance with hometown food vendors you can also see brewers, winemakers and distillers located in the food district. All of these local goods will be available for purchase showing off Erie’s diverse community contribution, of what makes our area great. All of this at no cost to all those who attend, thanks to those who have sponsored. There are shuttles and other information to help you select the days you choose to attend. Don’t miss out; this is going to be a great event. For more information check out or look at live videos and updates on their Facebook page. So if you like to dance, eat, sing, or have even one artistic bone in your body, get to downtown Erie for the Celebrate Erie festival. Embrace family time that will make memories and give the kids an experience and adventure long after summer is over. This is an event that is about Erie families, what makes it great, the local flavor and being together. Because you can never have too much of any of that.

automobile racing. There are similarities, such as man and machine versus a demanding environment, and the demands on both simply to survive any given contest. Yet there’s also a key difference: In offroad racing, the course changes from mile to mile or segment to segment. In offshore powerboat racing, the course changes from moment to moment—swell, wind, tide, current, and more make the offshore race course perhaps the most dynamic environment in all of motorsports. In an instant, the track can go from docile to hostile. Since its beginnings in the late 1960s, offshore racing has changed dramatically. True offshore courses where the boats, mostly V-bottoms in the early years of the sport, disappeared beyond the horizon for one big outand-back lap have given way to multi-lap events on near-shore courses that are more friendly to spectators and sponsors. Though V-bottom powerboat classes still exist, twin-engine catamarans with top speeds of 170 MPH in the most powerful classes dominate the sport, which enjoys a relatively small but intensely loyal group of competitors (less than 75 teams across the country) and fans. Streamed live and televised by CBS Sports it is no small feat to bring an event of this magnitude to our area. Last years event brought in approximately 30,00040,000 and roughly $10 million in revenue for


the area. The event is anticipated to bring in larger crowds this year and definitely more boats; especially as it’s now listed as part of the I Love New York campaign, and will be marketed by them in all 50 states. The inaugural event was a great learning experience for the planning team and a lot of changes were made to enhance this year’s experience. These changes include a big screen TV at the pier, more speakers along Lakefront Boulevard and at the pier so people can hear the commentary. Bringing large spectator crowds led to parking issues that have been ironed out. Working with the university, as well as the county, to have transportation to bring people to and from their cars at the college and fairgrounds will help with traffic flow both pedestrian and vehicular. Reaching out to outlying communities for assistance lightens the load and makes the event more inclusive. With an anticipated 50,000-60,000 people attending this year’s Grand Prix, managing the crowds will be paramount. Double the number of participating power boats will mean double the fun for everyone during this thrill a minute weekend. From the allin Grand Prix power boat race fanatic to the first time casual observer dipping their toes in the water for the first time Dunkirk will be bursting at the seams with excitement for the youngest to the oldest folks in the crowd.

Cont. From Cover amphibians for additional aid in identification. In this way, 8 new species “not even known” were identified since “Amphibians” was published in 2016. “There is a network that has developed because of books,” commented Leenders. Continuing, he described how the cell phone acts as a conservation tool especially in third world countries where traditional telephone lines may be nonexistent. He is a mentor even when he is thousands of miles away. While our conversation was to be about his books and their influence, “it is about much more than books” in his mind. It is more about immersion in the natural world and Leenders is concerned. He wants the children of the greater Jamestown area to follow the RTPI motto of “Learn it, love it, and protect it.”

This year, and for the past four years, 6 high school students and 2 college students were accepted into a 6 week summer program entitled Project Wild America Youth Ambassadors Program. The students investigate Jamestown’s urban ecosystem. “What’s to notice?” one may ask. Over 100 species of birds in Chadakoin Park is one answer. Five species of turtles in the Chadakoin River is another, including the Spiny Softshell Turtle. The students become active participants in the natural environment while learning job skills, critical thinking, and positive action according to the RTPI website. They also earn a $1,500 stipend upon successful completion of the 6 week curriculum-it is these students’ summer job. On the horizon, Twan Leenders would like to create a “knowledge center” at the RTPI that could accept a “steady stream of students” from the earliest learners to graduates.

Leenders believes that “nature does all of the work for free but we have to study this stuff.” Assessment and follow-through are elements sometimes missing in scientific inquiry according to this conservation biologist. Answers are there, they just have to be found, documented, and shared with the greater scientific community. Twan Leenders knows that there may be more questions than answers. He also knows that one has to decide, “what are the actual questions here?” He has influenced citizen scientists, real scientists, and students. He would like to inspire local students to enter his particular field of science. In this way, in this area of the world-Jamestown, NYhe is still connecting the dots.
