The America chestnut (Castanea dentata) was a widely-know important tree, much like the American elm and the white oak. Its loss as a functional component of our eastern forests in the past century is considered by many to be the greatest ecological disaster in recent history. The mission of The American Chestnut Foundation (www.acf.org) is to restore the American chestnut to a level of ecological and economic significance by the next century. Learn how we are working to make this a reality with the help of citizens like you. Our speaker, John Wenderoth is on the board of Pennsylvania-NJ chapter of ACF and a past president of the chapter.

There is no charge for this program, but donations are encouraged.
