An community forum on Oakland Lake will be held by the Alley Pond Environmental Center in observance of Earth Week.
The forum will discuss the lake's history as an oasis for Native Americans, as well as a water source for historic Flushing Village.
APEC's Educational Director Aline Euler, who will be hosting the discussion, will also speak to the body of water's role in the area as an urban lake.
The event will cost $8, and take place at 7:30p.m. on May 1, and the Alley Pond Environmental Center. Those interested in participating can call 718.229.4000.
