THIS EVENT IS FULL
Curious about American chestnuts? Love to hike and be outside? The American Chestnut Foundation (TACF) and Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy (SAHC) are leading an educational hike at the future South Yellow Mountain Preserve in Newland, NC.
Even though American chestnuts are considered functionally extinct, we are still able to view sprouts and small trees in our Western North Carolina forests and those planted and maintained by dedicated volunteers. Join TACF’s Regional Science Coordinator to learn more about how the blight has affected American chestnuts in this area and scientific progress toward restoration efforts as we hike to see two large-scale American chestnut plantings along a trail on South Yellow Mountain.
This hike is full, but stay tuned for future hiking opportunities!
