Less than 100 years ago eastern U.S. forests were dominated by large American chestnut trees. By the 1950’s this population was reduced to short-lived stump sprouts. These trees reined over 200 million acres of eastern woodlands. Join wildlife biologist, Curt Laffin, as he discusses in an illustrated program, the decimation of this important tree by the accidental introduction of chestnut blight early in the 20th century. Learn about the efforts of the American Chestnut Foundation to develop blight resistant trees and to restore the chestnut to its former range. This program, presented by The Little Nature Museum, is free; donations are appreciated. Information: www.littlenaturemuseum.org.
