Dear MDTACF Members & Friends.
We will have a chapter meeting from 10:30-12:00 at Fox Haven Learning Center in Jefferson MD on Saturday, March 7. The meeting, as always will be open to the public, and coincides with American Chestnut Day at Fox Haven.
In addition to our covering chapter business, Nina Shishkoff from the USDA Agricultural Research Service has agreed to give a presentation about about Phytophthera Root Rot (a.k.a. ink rot disease), another invasive disease for which me must take account in our breeding program.
We will also provide an update on the status of the TACF and our chapter’s breeding programs, and a brief presentation, targetted for new new and prospective members about various approaches to chestnut restoration, and how TACF’s backcross breeding program fits in.
I hope you can all make it. And if you have friends who may be interested in joining us, or just learning more about American chestnut, please bring them along.
Let me know if you have any questions,
I look forward to seeing you.
Maryland Chapter of the American Chestnut Foundation
