Chestnut Chat Series
Join us October 20 from 11:30AM – 1:00PM (EDT), for TACF’s next LIVE Chestnut Chat featuring student flash talks and a virtual poster session.
As part of our Annual Fall Meeting we look forward to our annual poster session and student flash talks. This year, we’re moving them into a virtual space! We will devote our October Chestnut Chat to a series of flash talks highlighting student work. A virtual poster session will follow and all are welcome to participate – student and professional alike (view the Request for Proposals). The event will be hosted by Kendra Collins, TACF’s Director of Regional Programs. We hope you will join us!

As any chestnut enthusiast knows, it is a Race to the Finish to harvest nuts before the blue jays and squirrels. Maine Chapter President Mark McCollough painted this piece after being inspired by naturalist Bernd Heinrich’s observations of blue jays harvesting and caching American chestnuts throughout his woodlot in western Maine. All proceeds will benefit TACF conservation programs. A limited number of these 9 3/4″ x 12 3/4″ signed giclée prints are available through November 15. Learn more here.
