Description

The 8th Annual Chestnut Restoration Celebration will be held on Saturday, October 14, 2017, 1:00-5:00PM at the Glenn C. Price Research Laboratory in Meadowview, Virginia. “The Celebration provides a rare opportunity to see the expansion of resources at the Research Farm where blight resistant trees are being developed in order to restore the American chestnut to our forests” said Stan Tucker, president of SWVA Restoration Branch.
Learn about restoration efforts while taking a hayride through the orchard or listening to talks on genomics selection methods. Sample fresh roasted chestnuts and foods made with chestnuts, taste freshly pressed apple cider, and try locally brewed chestnut beer. Enjoy live music with a variety of activities for kids. Restoration Chestnuts 1.0 seedlings will be raffled and handcrafted chestnut walking sticks will be available.
