Directions: GPS is recommended. From route 421 from the south or north go to the town of Kirklin and look for highway 38 which you will take to the west. Follow 38 about 5 miles until you see a bridge over Sugar Creek. Just past the bridge, on the western side of the bridge turn southwest onto Scotland Road, a gravel road which follows the north side of Sugar Creek for several miles. Finally you come to a T-intersection with S. CR 400 E. Scotland Road Christian Church is on your right. Turn left here heading south. Note that S. CR 400 E. is called CR 200 E starting about a mile south in Boone County. Once on 400E. travel south only about 1/4 mile and turn right onto E CR 730 S. Then go a few hundred yards west until you see a gravel drive on the right and a mailbox with the address 3562 CR 730 S. Turn right (north) into the drive and park on the left where you see chestnut seedlings growing in tubes.

Meet Venus and Neptune! These kittens are not even a year old yet, which might explain their affinity for getting into boxes and paper bags. They are great at helping their loving caretaker, TACF's Nursery Manager at Meadowview Research Farms, Ciera manage pests.

Ciera grew up in California where they gained love and respect for the natural world. Growing up in the California foothills, a story about American chestnut breeding inspired them to pursue their passion for the environment as a career!
