Two hundred years ago the American Chestnut began a catastrophic population decline. Over 4 billion trees were lost along the United States eastern seaboard and Connecticut woodlands were hit especially hard. Today modern science and a highly committed group of volunteers are helping to re-establish the species. Join us for a presentation by Jack Swatt, President, Connecticut Chapter American Chestnut Foundation, followed by a field trip and short hike at McLean Game Refuge, Salmon Brook Street entrance, to locate and view American Chestnut specimens.
