BRFAL at A.T. Mega-Transect Chestnut count

Identifying and collecting data on American chestnut trees along the Appalachian Trail is the goal of the Virginia Chapter of The American Chestnut Foundation.
Charlotte H, Chris C and Kathy S went to the Appalachian Trail Mega-Transect Chestnut count training at Glen Alton on June 4 (pictured with instructor John Scrivani-left). The exciting thing about this photo and information is that these three are part of the 2011 class of BRFAL Chapter en-training! 

Read The American Chestnut Story here, which was was once one of the most important trees in our eastern hardwood forests, before the chestnut blight struck! 

Education is a vital part of the Virginia Chapter American chestnut restoration effort. The American chestnut story is a compelling means of teaching about the interrelatedness of the natural world. The Virginia Chapter is actively seeking partners as it develops educational programs.
