The American Chestnut (Castanea dentata), once the predominant hardwood of the Northeast deciduous forest, has been decimated over the past century by an invasive blight. Organizations, such as the American Chestnut Foundation, have been involved with saving this important species through genetic back-crossing with other blight-resistant species. Come learn the current research being done and how you can help save this iconic species from extinction in a talk given by Charles Fulco, member of the American Chestnut Foundation. Blight-resistant saplings will be distributed to each attendee to plant at home. Adults only. Members Free, Non-members $7. Programs require pre-registration. To register, call 914-762-2912 x 110.
