Learn the status of restoration efforts for the American Chestnut tree. Once the “Redwood of the East,” the American Chestnut was rendered functionally extinct by an imported pathogen. Now, a century later, researchers hope the tree can rejoin the ranks of our eastern forests.
Join WRLF for a lecture by Lois Breault-Melican, former President of the MA/RI Chapter of the American Chestnut Foundation.
Light refreshments will be served.
