A 'field guide' to the landscape of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory
Date:6/9/2008

COLD SPRING HARBOR, N.Y. A new book, Grounds for Knowledge, is an attractive guide to CSHL's mix of historic and modern buildings and the striking landscape that surrounds them. It was written by historic preservationist and tree enthusiast Elizabeth L. Watson, who, together with her husband James D. Watson and two children, has lived in various homes on the picturesque grounds of CSHL for almost four decades.

The first five chapters of Grounds for Knowledge cover the buildings and grounds of the main campus, which extends along the western shore of Cold Spring Harbor in the Incorporated Village of Laurel Hollow, New York. Three additional chapters cover the nearby Lab campuses in Woodbury, Lloyd Harbor, and Cold Spring Harbor village. The book includes a brief history of each building, the common and scientific names of woody trees and shrubs, and descriptions of sculptures, plantings, and water features, as well as detailed maps that invite exploration. The appendices contain building and bird checklists, a guide to the seasonal changes of the vegetation, and recommended strolls through CSHL.

As described in Grounds for Knowledge, the main campus of CSHL was recently established as the "Bungtown Botanical Garden" through the Public Gardens Association of America. As an arboretum, Bungtown Botanical Garden serves not only an aesthetic purpose, but an educational one. Signs identify more than 150 unique and interesting plants on the main campus, and the public is invited to sign up for guided walking tours of the grounds throughout the year.
