LBL Helping to Restore the American Chestnut

 

Land Between the LakesGolden Pond, KY – Land Between The Lakes (LBL) National Recreation Area recently planted 50 American chestnut seeds in the northern end of LBL near Woodlands Nature Station. These native seeds were donated by the American Chestnut Cooperators’ Foundation; some of which are the offspring of American chestnuts previously planted in LBL. 

The American chestnut was once one of the most important trees in the eastern United States; occupying about 25 percent of the hardwood canopy in eastern forests. By the early 1950s an exotic fungus from Asia, known as the chestnut blight, had killed approximately 4 billion American chestnuts. The disease nearly eliminated the species all across the eastern United States, including in LBL’s forests.  «Read the rest of this article»

APSU Remembers Legacy and Friendship of Late Composer Lee Hoiby

 

Clarksville, TN – In his later years, the renowned American composer Lee Hoiby was a quiet, slender gentleman with wavy gray hair and intelligent, often amused eyes. His appearance suited his style of music, which was reminiscent of the pleasing tunes of the early Romantic era and of his idol, Franz Schubert.

“His music is beautiful,” Gregory Wolynec, Austin Peay State University associate professor of music, said. “When we think of contemporary music, we frequently think of things that can be difficult for audiences to approach. But Lee Hoiby considered himself the caretaker of an heirloomed garden that started back with Mozart and Haydn, and even earlier than that.”
