On Jan. 14, 2014 at 7 p.m., The Chester Conservation Committee will host a talk by Grace Knight, a volunteer with the American Chestnut Foundation (TACF). Grace has worked with TACF since 2007 to locate rare, surviving mature American chestnut trees and pollinate them to breed a blight-resistant tree with locally adapted Vermont genes. She has worked with a half-dozen surviving American chestnut trees in Chester, and with many others throughout the state. Those who attend her talk should leave with an ability to identify a wild American chestnut tree and enthusiasm for the restoration effort.
