Here is a pic from last week's screening of TACF's documentary, Clear Day Thunder, at the DeSoto Theater with Rome International Film Festival. Pictured are presenters/discussion leaders Kathy Patrick, Dr. Martin Cipollini, and Lisa Thomson. It was a really fun event with about 70 attendees and some very interesting post-film questions.... ; )

Look forward to some announcements regarding summer volunteer activities coming up in July! The American Chestnut Foundation

Thanks to our friends at The Historic DeSoto Theatre for all their help and support! The tech folks rocked it, those in the concessions area were everyone’s friends, the promo was far-reaching, and we appreciate all the housekeeping details. Thanks to all who joined us too!

The film and the discussion afterward was very interesting!

In a recent article by New York magazine’s Intelligencer, journalist Kate Morgan details the history of the development of the Darling 58 transgenic American chestnut tree, the discovery that it was, in fact, Darling 54, and how that impacted the partnership between The American Chestnut Foundation and SUNY ESF’s American Chestnut Research & Restoration Project.

TACF President & CEO Will Pitt, along with TACF Chief Conservation Officer Sara Fitzsimmons are quoted.
