The New American Chestnut

April 17 @ 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm

$10

Much work has gone into attempting to bring back the American chestnut tree, decimated by the exotic chestnut blight fungus beginning in the late 1800s.

William A. Powell will speak about transgenic research that has produced a tree that is 99.999% American chestnut as well as possibilities for reviving a species once ubiquitous in eastern North American forests.

William A. Powell, Director, Council on Biotechnology in Forestry, SUNY, and Co-Director, New York State American Chestnut Research and Restoration Program

 

Cost: $10; Free for students. Pre-registration requested here
